Photography

Tillmans, Wolfgang (1968)

Wolfgang Tillmans made a name for himself in the 1990s when he depicted the acid house scene for i-D magazine and the German photographer soon formed the holy trinity of the decade’s photography, with Juergen Teller and Terry Richardson. Eager to embrace the world with an innovative eye, he proposes conceptual, casual and raw images of people and architectural details as much as commercial spaces and animals. In 1997, he shot Kate Moss for the American Vogue and began his ‘great Caravaggio years’ as he calls them believing the Italian artist ‘was just another young man dealing with the issues of his time… I've always understood looking at other and older art as looking at friends' work.’ And it’s true that when Juergen Teller has now focused on advertising and that Terry Richardson engages with scandal - accused of sexually exploiting his models - Wolfgang Tillmans has, him, managed to become a recognized artist, winning the Turner prize in 2000.
