Wolfgang Tillmans in Artforum talk

Wolfgang Tillmans:

„…People just assume they now that a portrait is done in such and such a way. But the qualities that make the portrait, the parameters that were really at play, you don’t know. (…) People think they know what photography does and from the side of the maker, I know so much about how what makes a good work really is so subtle. If you approach it and try to explain it via what’s in it (…) that doesn’t really describe it…”
