Wolfgang Tillmans: The Cars

Edited and text by Wolfgang Tillmans.

Wolfgang Tillmans: The CarsThe Cars compiles a new body of work by renowned photographer Wolfgang Tillmans (born 1968). Since the early 90s, Tillmans has redefined the genre of photography, epitomizing a new kind of subjectivity and questioning existing values and hierarchies. The Cars is no exception; images of cars in a typical street view--not in a crash, or an extreme traffic jam, but simply present--pay tribute to the amount of time we spend around, or looking at, or using the vehicle. "Cars are everywhere," the photographer says. "Their sheer number is the most crazy thing about them. They appear in our lives with excessive omnipresence. In their volume cars intrude upon public space, and the way they occupy streets and open areas is rarely challenged." This unusual artist's book takes up a subject rarely deemed worthy of representation. "Virtually wherever there are people, there are cars and they are visually intermingling in whatever we see," Tillmans points out. "We are looking at the world from a car and cars are in the foreground, the background or in between of what is in our view." With over 100 color photographs and text by the artist himself, this new volume is an important addition to any photobook collection, and to our understanding of what it is to live in a world oversaturated with both cars and images.

Wolfgang Tillmans: The Cars

Wolfgang Tillmans: The Cars Launch at Dashwood Books

Featured image is reproduced from Wolfgang Tillmans: The Cars, an artist's book launching Friday, September 11 at Dashwood Books, where Tillmans will sign from 6-8PM. Though the book collects photographs that capture "what cars 'actually' look like," a poetry comes through.
Tillmans writes:
"There is more to say and describe. Cars are infinitely rich in sensual experiences.
The smells. The touch inside.
Of a new car.
The scented trees
Old upholstery. Cold smoke.
The air pressure against a hand held out of the side window.
Plastic.
Textured plastic, wood, leather.
The thud of a fat door, the bang of a hollow door.
A hard suspension. A soft suspension.
Melted snow and gravel making a grey soup of the foot mat.
A wasp trapped behind the wind screen.
The smell of the inside of a car parked in full sunlight.
The creepiness of a heated seat.
A coin lost between the upholstery." continue to blog
