German (b. 1968)
One of the most distinctive artists to emerge in the 1990s, Tillmans is recognized for creating work that captures evocative, intimate reflections of often overlooked objects and moments in everyday life. His figurative photographs present us with an alternative to conventional ideas about beauty - his landscapes, still-lifes and portraits have a distinctive energy, often appearing spontaneous and improvisatory when in fact they are carefully planned, while his abstract compositions are made by manipulating the effects of light on photo-sensitive paper.
