Tillmans’s latest project sets its sights on the world. Over the period of more than two decades, Wolfgang Tillmans has explored the medium of photo-imaging with greater range than any other artist of his generation. From snapshots of his friends to abstract images made in a darkroom without a camera or works made with a photocopier, he has pushed the photographic process to its outer limits in myriad ways. For this collection of photos, his fourth book with Taschen, Tillmans turned away from the self-reflexive exploration of the photography medium that had occupied him for several years by focusing his lens on the outside world—from London and Nottingham to Tierra del Fuego, Tasmania, Saudi Arabia, and Papua New Guinea. He describes this new phase simply as “trying out what the camera can do for me, what I can do for it.” The result is a powerful and singular view of life today in diverse parts of the world, seen from many angles. Says Tillmans, “My travels are aimless as such, not looking for predetermined results, but hoping to find subject matter that in some way or other speaks about the time I’m in.” The exhibition Wolfgang Tillmans: Neue Welt / Wolfgang Tillmans. New World will be on show at the Kunsthalle in Zurich until November 2012. The monograph will be available on October 30, but is available for preorder now.

On view at Martin-Gropius-Bau Museum are an impressive four hundred vintage photographs taken by Dennis Hopper in the 1960s. Tucked away in five crates and forgotten, they were discovered after his death.Many of these pictures are icons, such as the portraits of Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Paul Newman and Jane Fonda. They also cover a wide range of subjects. Dennis Hopper is interested in everything. Wherever he happens to be, whether in Los Angeles, New York, London, Mexico or Peru, he takes in his surroundings with empathy, enthusiasm and intense curiosity. He seeks and savours the “essential moment”, capturing the celebrities and types of his time with the camera: actors, artists, musicians, his family, Hell’s Angels and hippies. He leaves an impressive photographic record of the “street life” of Harlem, of cemeteries in Mexico, and of bullfights in Tijuana. Hopper accompanies Martin Luther King on the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Dennis Hopper: Lost Album is on view until December 17, 2012 at Martin-Gropius-Bau, Niederkirchner Straße 7, 10963 Berlin, Germany

Kham is an editorial directed and styled by Nelson Vieira and photographed by Aloisio Brito and their brilliant creative team based in Oporto, Portugal exclusively for Pas Un Autre. Kham paints a dusty, bucolic landscape, replete with sheep and their restless herder who meanders dirt roads and jagged mountainous byways perhaps begging longingly for whats beyond the great horizon.

Juergen Teller’s exhibition Irene im Wald is currently on view at The Journal Gallery in Brooklyn. Irene im Wald is the first part of what Teller sees as a four-part series to be shot in the woods near the house in Erlangen, Germany, where he was raised. “Gebrüder Grimm, witches, the big bad wolf—the forest is one hell of a scary place, I thought. But even as a child I was drawn towards it—it was scary, but the beauty and the peacefulness of it all sucked me in.” Juergen’s next exhibition The Girl with the Broken Nose will be on view at the Palazzo Reale in Milan starting September 20 and an exhibition at ICA, London starting in January. Irene im Wald is on view until November 4 at The Journal Gallery, 168 North 1st Street Brooklyn NY photograph by Michael Nevin
