Jo'burg (2004) Birthplace of Guy Tillim, Johannesburg has been radicaly changed after the end of apparteid, with a controversal urban transformation. Tillim was interested in the people forgotten of this metamorphosis : inhabitants prisoners of the unhealthy towers, awaiting reconstruction, that he had observed in their daily lives. Tillim photographed families, children, teenagers lonely excluded who lived in those decomposated apartments, squatted, or destroyed by the violence palpable of expulsions – and the town, ghostlike, from the top of these towers.

Patrice Lumumba Avenue (2008) From 2007 to 2008, Guy Tillim went throught Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mozambique, Madagascar, Benin, Ghana, Angola – and took in each of these countries the visual emptyness left by years of politic vacuum. His pictures show what remains of the great epoch, the non sense of crying out certain activities and structures that have survived - the empty swimming pools of abandoned palaces, deprived officials in offices in the form of stage sets – beckettian absurdity, an « after » search of identity.

Guy Tillim insists on the fact that those pictures are not a testimony of post colonian african collapse states, but a photographic wandering, on dreams avenues , and among others, Patrice Lumumba’s one.
