Wolfgang Tillmans – Concorde


With no text other than the inner-front flap’s description, Wolfgang Tillmans’s now iconic book, first published in 1997, consists of 62 colour photographs of the Concorde airplane – taking off, landing or in flight, and sometimes as just a tiny, birdlike silhouette in the sky. The photographs speak of both the beauty and the environmental devastation produced by this fabled French airplane, both sides of which Tillmans captures in his casual yet formally elegant signature style.
