About this artwork

Wolfgang Tillmans works in the genres of portraiture, still life, landscape, and abstraction, often presenting a variety of images in a single exhibition. Collum is part of a series of portraits made between 2008 and 2012 in which Tillmans departed from his usual mixing of genres. For this series, the photographer isolated intimate views of a single subject, a man named Karl. Tillmans states: “Making a portrait is a fundamental artistic act and the process of it is a very direct human exchange. The dynamics of vulnerability, exposure, embarrassment and honesty do not change, ever.”
