If One Thing Matters- A Film About Wolfgang Tillmans
In his early twenties, German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans rose to fame in the 1990s with his iconic imagery of gay subculture showcasing friends, fashion and nightclub activity. Tillmans topped the artistic charts because of his renowned experimentations with the photographic process. Filmmaker Heiko Kalmbach follows Tillmans over the course of four years, providing an intimate and candid portrait of the London-based photographer in this remarkably compelling documentary.
