"exalting the simple laws of common sense or of super-sense if you prefer determining form by way of the nature of materials..."
Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater, Kaufmann House, Bear Run, Pennsylvania, 1936.
From snapshots of friends to abstract images created sans camera in darkrooms or photocopiers, Wolfgang Tillmans has explored the medium of photo image making for more than two decades. For his most recent collection of photos he explains “my travels are aimless as such, not looking for predetermined results, but hoping to find subject matter that in some way or other speaks about the time I’m in.”
His exhibition Wolfgang Tillmans: Neue Welt will be on at the Kunsthalle in Zurich until November 2012.
