Wolfgang Tillmans: Utoquai

 

Taking his book title from an island off the Greek coast frequented by Europeans on holiday, Tillmans closes out the series with a deeply personal visual investigation of a single muse throughout the entirety of the book. It’s rare that a close up photo of an ear or an eye or a knee can be both endlessly interesting and unmistakably authored by one individual, but here Tillmans achieves just that. By re-examining the human body through photography we are left with a new understanding of viewing images by one of the world’s most prominent artists of our time.
