Description

Known since the early 1990s for his photographs of young people in their social environment - clubs, gay pride parades, warehouse parties - Wolfgang Tillmans created an enigmatic, sexy and highly innovative photography while inventing new icons of beauty and style for gallery goers and magazine readers alike. This book is an updated and expanded edition of his 2002 monograph, featuring a new survey on his work from the past ten years and new artist's writings.
