One of South Africa’s foremost contemporary photographers. Learning his trade as photojournalist nearly two decades ago, Tillim’s oeuvre has proven to be far more than that of orthodox reportage.

Tillim has been awarded the first Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography by the Peabody Museum at Harvard University. In recent months, his work has been exhibited at the São Paulo Bienal…

Tillim ranks among the most interesting photographic artists in South Africa. His oeuvre comprises portraits, photo documentaries of political hot spots in Africa and photographic urban research. Alongside his freelance work as a photographic artist, the 41-year-old has also been working as a photographer for national and international media since 1986…
