“Burg” is a photo collection of Wolfgang Tillmans, Germany’s leading photographer and artist. Tillmans, who has emerged in fashion and commercial photography such as “iD” since the turbulent 90s, has created more artistic works and installations since around 2000. However, the original roots are in “contemporary art”, represented by Warhol et al., And even in the early days, ignoring the border between art and design, the gallery space and the print medium were treated as parallel, and presentations were made. So commercials are not the starting point. Here are the main works of Tillmans in the early days. One book that can be said to be the definitive edition of “Tillmans of the 90s”, created with the thoughts of a beloved partner who suddenly died of AIDS. The sense of combining various elements to show them is outstanding, and the aesthetics of finding “art” in everyday things are sharpened.
