Wolfgang Tillmans

  • Tillmans was born in 1968, Germany
  • He won the Turner Prize in 2000, (He was the first photographer to do this)
  • Now lives and works in London
  • exhibited his first abstract and damaged pictures as a Parkett edition in 1998
  • They were true darkroom mistakes and experiments
  • Particularly interested in the chemical foundations of photographic material.

I am a fan of Tillmans work as I think the method of letting the medium dictate the outcome is calming yet at the same time very intriguing as each outcome is completely different and unique. Nothing is predictable.
