Tillmans constructs complex and playful relationships between many objects, none more important than another, creating a democratic and sensual mood. His images are usually in color, and the lighting is even and unremarkable, since he wants his work to have the accessibility of daily life, and none of the sanctified remoteness of high art.

Classic photography seemed so remote, so irrelevant to me...Now I'm glad I never knew the history of photography until after I found my stylistic footing.
Paradise is maybe when you dissolve your ego- a loss of self, being in a bundle of other bodies.- Wolfgang Tillmans
