Co-published by The Walther Collection, this book presents selections from Guy Tillim’s most influential works and series of the last decade, including “Mai Mai militia in training,” “Jo’burg,” “Avenue Patrice Lumumba,” and “Second Nature.”
Anchored in photojournalism but working against the grain of spectacle, Tillim portrays the communities, social landscapes and symbolic structures of societies altered by conflict. From explorations of modernist architecture—and its utopian ruins—in post-colonial Angola, Congo and Mozambique, to the homes and private lives of Johannesburg’s inner-city residents, Tillim’s work raises timely questions about the politics and representation of the built environment.
