Wolfgang Tillmans (Germany, 1968) is a German-born artist and photographer, who’s exhibited around the world. In 2000, he was the first photographer and first non-British artist to receive the Turner Prize. His diverse body of work is distinguished by observations of his surroundings and encompasses a wide array of genres. His portraits, still lifes, sky photographs, astrophotography, aerial shots and landscapes are motivated equally by aesthetic and political interests, especially related to homosexuality and gender identity, and more recently, vital European issues such as the refugee crisis.
