wolfgang tillmans

Since the early ’90s, German artist and photographer Wolfgang Tillmans has been shooting his life and everything around him, from flowers and friends to the Concorde taking off and the night scene. Experimenting with different formats, he always treated photography as an art form and distanced himself from fashion, only contributing to a handful of titles, including i-D and Purple. He has been an important collaborator since the beginning, shooting covers, artists’ portraits, and fashion stories — always pushing us to be more politically engaged.

For this anniversary issue, he shot the American designer Rick Owens waking up in his Paris home, getting out of bed, taking a shower, and preparing for the day in his own clothes.
