Prolific Zürich-based photographer and artist Peter Tillessen (b. 1969, Germany), internationally recognized for his artist books, photographs, drawings and sculptures, teams up with the Centre de la Photographie, Genève (2016), for a massive solo exhibition and catalog of over 300 photographic works titled Superficial Images. Tillesen’s decade of photographs with captions referencing their content at first glance seem to document our everyday reality. Upon closer examination, it becomes clear that neither the photographs nor the captions are reliable, but coalesce instead into a personal photographic narrative. Over 300 color images and essays by Joerg Bader, Ian Jeffrey and Jan Wenzel comprise this combination artist’s book/exhibition catalog. Superficial Images is a “must have” for devoted Tillessen followers. A second publication with Spector Books for Tillessen.
