Guy Tillim, Kunhinga, Angola, February 2002
The 2004 DaimlerChrysler Award for South African Creative Photography goes to photographer Guy Tillim for his sensitive and critical photographs, covering different genre as portrait photography, photos of trouble spots in Africa and urban landscapes.
In addition to working as a freelance creative photographer, the 41-year-old has been illustrating reports for national and international media since 1986.
With this distinction for Tillim, the DaimlerChrysler Award confirms its assignment of serving as a forum for committed aesthetic positions. The award derives its significance from the fact that a major exhibition will be staged and a comprehensive catalogue produced.
