About the Work

Traces of colour and abstract structures. Tillmans made this work – the result of a photochemical process using neither a camera nor a negative – in the darkroom. From the purely technical standpoint, it is a photograph but does not represent anything specific. It is a form of non-representational photograph with which Tillmans prompts us to change our seeing habits: the continuation of painting with photographic means.
