Wolfgang Tillmans: 'What art does in me is beyond words'

We spend the day with artist in his Berlin studio as he prepares for his Tate Modern exhibition

German-born, international in outlook and exhibited around the world, Wolfgang Tillmans spent many years in the UK and is currently based in Berlin. In 2000, he was the first photographer and first non-British artist to receive the Turner Prize.

Alongside portraiture, landscape and intimate still lifes, Tillmans pushes the boundaries of the photographic form in abstract artworks that range from the sculptural to the immersive.
