Guy Tillim (b. 1962) is based in Cape Town, South Africa.
For his brilliantly observed studies of the life of the often beleaguered residents of Hillbrow, Johannesburg in their decaying and overcrowded environment, Guy 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.
