Wolfgang Tillmans – Freishwimmer

German born Wolfgang Tillmans is a fine art photographer who questions a wide variety of subjects. I personally believe his work to be very experimental and some a little too ‘experimental’ portraits expressing pop culture. But I will not be typing about those particularly ‘out there’ works in this post.

I was really drawn by the abstract nature of Freishwimmer, which I first guessed to translate literally in english as ‘free swimmer’ but I later found out that it actually mean ‘someone swimming toward freedom after reading this article. I find it quite difficult to work out how Tillmans created the following images but I can clearly say that I really enjoy the fluidity of each work, the strange liquid-like swirls and loose patterns.
