About Today is the First Day

Today is the First Day is a multi-perspective exploration of Tillman’s work over the years. In fact, it documents his first major solo exhibition in Belgium. Across 30 pages, we delve into the artist’s several approaches to his work. Accordingly, the mediums are varied: photography, video, music, video, activism, etc.

As well as Tillman’s work, this book was made with the collaboration of contributors such as Olivia Lain, Catherine Wood or Brian Dillon. Furthermore, every contributor has their own different approach, skill or profession, which creates a very rich study of the artist. As a result, we get to appreciate different sides of Tillman’s process and interests.


About Wolfgang Tillmans

Wolfgang Tillmans was born in 1968 in Germany. His diverse body of work is distinguished by observation of his surroundings and the investigation of the photographic medium’s foundations. He was the first photographer to be awarded the Tate annual Turner Prize. He was initially known for this seemingly casual, snapshot style portraits. His subjects were his own friends and other young people he would bump into. He established himself in the early 90’s after several of his photographs from Love Parade (1992) or Europride (1992) appeared in magazines, putting him in the spotlight as a witness of a contemporary social movement.

Tillmans’ photographic practice evolved into a wide array of genres. His portraits, still lifes, sky photographs, astrophotography, aerial shots and landscapes have both, aesthetic and political interests. Also, a big theme in his work is homosexuality and gender identity.
