This is a really good photography book. If you like to collect books like this, this has to be in your collection. It has 3 books, they are medium size but thick and quality paper, also heavy. Fair price.

This book of the photography of Wolfgang Tillmans is full of image of people. He often concentrates on still life, or cityscape, or interiors, but this volume is full of people. They are young people, wearing odds and ends that reflect their youth culture and their sense of style and energy. The photographs include fashion photography but in the unique style of Tillmans which is a mixture of documentation, diary, portraiture, and spontaneity. His sense of color is superb But are these photographs really a diary spontaneously developed from odds and ends? Not really. They are carefully constructed and are meant to evoke a range of meanings to the viewer. He is able to seamlessly mix the found composition with the constructed composition. All of Tillmans' books are packed with photographs. No doubt he is prolific but there is another reason for so many photographs in one book. The photographs evoke narrative in the viewer. We try to link them together. We see a photograph of a handsome man followed by one of a man's genitals. Are these the genitals of the man in the previous photograph? We are not told. This layering and linking photographs evokes stories and situations. I find that I imagine Tillmans as an actor in each scene, photographing and experiencing at the same time, and fully connected to the folks in the picture. Is there such a thing as gay imagery? A gay man's eye will capture the world through a gay filter and thus some of the work is homoerotic in a natural experiential way. Gay life and heterosexual life bleed together in the youth culture and the chaotic energy of young adulthood is well documented. His photography can best be described in one word `feast'.
