A visionary creator and intrepid polymath, Wolfgang Tillmans unites formal inventiveness with an ethical orientation that attends to the most pressing issues of life today. While his work transcends the bounds of any single artistic discipline, he is best known for his wide-ranging photographic output. From trenchant documents of social movements to windowsill still lifes, sensitive portraits to architectural studies, ecstatic images of nightlife to cameraless abstractions, astronomical observations to intimate nudes, he has explored seemingly every genre of photography imaginable, continually experimenting with ways to make new pictures and deepen the viewer’s experience.

Published in conjunction with a major exhibition of Tillmans’s work at The Museum of Modern Art, this copiously illustrated volume surveys four decades of the artist’s career. An outstanding group of writers offer diverse essays addressing key aspects of his multifaceted practice, and a new text by Tillmans himself elucidates the distinctive methodology behind his system of presenting photographs. Wolfgang Tillmans: To look without fear grants readers new insight into the work of an artist who has not only transformed the way photography is exhibited but pointed contemporary art in dynamic new directions. 320 pp.; 400 illus.
