Tshililo (right) and her friends share a one-roomed apartment in Cape Agulhas Esselen Street, Hillbrow
For his brilliantly observed studies of the life of the often beleagured residents of Hillbrow, Johannesburg in their decaying and overcrowded environment, Guy Tillim won the Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2005, awarded by the Leica Camera Group in collaboration with Rencontres de la Photographie festival held in Arles, France.
ArtThrob is honoured to be able to offer one of the prints from this series as part of Editions for ArtThrob, and thanks Michael Stevenson for his assistance.
Tillim has had a long and distinguished career as a photographer, winning the Daimler Chrysler award in 2004. His work is included on the exhibition 'Snap Judgements' curated by Okwui Enwezor which opened at the ICP in New York in early 2006, and on the mega touring exhibition 'Africa Remix'. He will exhibit on the Sao Paulo Bienal later in 2006.
