Wolfgang Tillmans snippet
Before he moved to England, he worked for British fashion and style magazines. His work was more spontaneous than most magazine photography, often seeming to catch fleeting moments. He typically photographed young people, sometimes clubbers or part of the gay scene, sometimes the homeless. His work has often been compared to Nan Goldin who documented Manhattan's Lower East Side in New York City in a similar way.
Wolfgang Tillmans
Wolfgang Tillmans (born 1968) is a photographer. He has worked for fashion and style magazines as well as showing his work in art galleries.
Born in Remscheid in Germany, Tillmans lived in Hamburg in the 1980s before moving to England. He took a course on photography at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art from 1990 to 1992, and then moved to London.
Even before he moved to England, Tillmans was working for British fashion and style magazines. His work for them was apparently more spontaneous than most magazine photography, often seeming to catch fleeting moments. He typically photographed young people, sometimes clubbers or part of the gay scene, sometimes homeless. His work has often been compared to Nan Goldin who documented Manhattan's Lower East Side in New York City in a similar snapshot aesthetic way.
His initial work led to some degree of fame in the business, and within a couple of years he was photographing famous musicians. His images often draw connections between apparently disparate images.
