Tillmans prints all his work himself and has exacting standards: 'I guess I could have an easier life if I didn't care so much about all the different manifestations of an image, if I didn't care about making the prints myself in my studio, but somehow I see that as being part of my work, and the time spent dealing with a print is also time spent with the work. I understand my work better through this process. A photograph about a photograph.'
