“[Wolfgang Tillmans] photocopied printed images and bought his first camera so he could obtain more material for the copy machine. Achieving prominence in the early 1990s, when his pictures of Hamburg night life were published in i-D, a British periodical known for its cutting-edge design, he prized his work not as it existed in its original form but as it appeared laid out in the magazine. . . . Abrupt contrasts, confusing superimpositions—the magazine presented life as he knew it.” Arthur Lubow • New York Times
