If One Thing Matters: A Film About Wolfgang Tillmans

Wolfgang Tillmans is one of the best-known and most popular photographers in the world. He became famous in the early 1990s with apparently spontaneous images from the club and party scene, but he was soon regarded as more than just a chronicler of the techno generation. In 2000, he was the first photographer and the first foreigner to receive Britain’s prestigious Turner Prize. Kalmbach followed Tillmans at work for four years, creating a portrait based on observation and interviews with the artist, rather than expert testimonials.
