Wolfgang Tillmans is a German artist mainly known for the use of multiple photographic genres in his gallery installations, in which he has also included video. One of Tillmans' other chief modes of presentation is through the book form. He has produced a number of artist’s books throughout his career. He is the first artist working with photography at the center of his practice to have won the Turner Prize (2000) and, controversially, the first non-British citizen to have done so.

You can visit his web site here.
