This group of photos explores to what extent a photographer can truly render a natural or urban landscape by evoking a question which is inherent to the representation of landscape: “How much do you ‘give’ a scene and how much do you let it speak for itself ?”

The Polynesian landscape has been the subject of numerous sketches and photos since Captain Cook’s voyages at the end of the 18th century, perhaps because it almost eludes any convincing form of representation. When Guy Tillim takes photos of a landscape, he sets himself the task of “actually seeing the landscape. It’s a space that changes its face with a glance or a ghost of a thought.1” Rather than represent a landscape through details or its monumentality, he is trying to capture an in-between space which makes this representation of nature seems familiar, where each element can express itself equally and without hierarchy.

As if looking for a modern counterpoint to his Polynesian photos, Guy Tillim travelled to São Paulo – a town which has also been filmed, photographed and described from every conceivable angle. Here too, he was seeking a new way of describing a city of which it has been said that “its total absence of personality has become its personality.” Guy Tillim took the same approach to this urban landscape as to the landscapes of Polynesia:
“I show a sort of indeterminate area. The things that we don’t notice, as they are quotidian things. They contribute as much to the landscape as the other things2
