Sinopsis: Accept no substitutes. Wolfgang Tillmans could well be the coolest photographer on the planet, and here's the evidence. Always imitated, never bettered, he's the lens-meister of the zeitgeist, the photo-journo who went artside, a man in constant demand, moving effortlessly from magazine to fashion shoot to gallery retrospective. He creates identities, he's the brand name of hip. From Ray Gun to i-D, his images feel iconic before they're out of the fluid. I'll be your mirror, he whispers, and the Gen X-kids find themselves reflected in his always open pictures. Make your own meaning, rave about them, the artifice, the stagings, it's so close to home and snapshot-casual you could do it yourself. But you couldn't. Framing is all. Every shot is classically composed, it's just the subjects that are so Now. From the portraits that made him famous, through the still lives and landscapes (undermining the genres with every shot), this second book, with design and layout from the man himself, is high colour, dirty realist heaven. Finding the still point in the information overload, the sexuality in the machine, and the image in the image saturation, Tillmans gives us the brief epiphanies we might just remember as our own.
From Library Journal:
These three inexpensive volumes present the work of some of today's most interesting and accessible art photographers. Emotions & Relations collects the work of five relatively established photographers who first came to know each other while in art school and the 1970s and have since sometimes been grouped as the "Boston School." While most members share similar content (their friends and acquaintances as subjects) and technique (lush, painterly uses of color), each demonstrates a clear individual style. This catalog to an exhibition at the Hamburger Kunsthalle makes a fine case for both their grouping and their specific talents, offering two short essays on the show and the "school" and introductions to each artist preceding the separate portfolios. While all five?Nan Goldin, David Armstong, Mark Morrisroe, Jack Pierson, and Philip-Lorca diCorcia?have published monographs, this volume offers new insights for substantial art libraries and a concise and beautiful compendium for small and medium public libraries. The German Tillmans and Japanese Mori are younger but still have impressive museum credentials under their belts. Mori's book accompanies a show traveling from Los Angeles to Pittsburgh and Chicago. Her stylized photos, using herself as subject in a variety of over-the-top costumes, at first simply entertain and make the viewer happy. But her juxtapositions of contemporary urban life and surreal fantasy also impart more disturbing thoughts. Tillmans's book, his fourth, is the most comprehensive collection of his work and finally captures the full variety of styles?from diaristic snapshots to painterly still lifes to off-the-wall fashion spreads. What unifies all this is an ability to see the ordinary and be astonished. Emotions & Relations belongs in nearly all libraries; Tillmans is a fine choice for medium and large public institutions; Mori will be at home in larger public and academic art collections.?Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"
