Edit Beijing
2017

Born during a artistic residency, the series Edit Beijing is the conclusion of Guy Tillim's wandering throught Beijing's streets and alleys.

With this pictures, the South African photographer captures instants from the daylilife before presenting them as dyptichs or triptychs. The photos are placed side by side to, in a playful manner, create a feeling of consistency as if it was a continuous scene when they are in fact independant pictures. ??

Quite different from the cityscapes' photos of Tillim in African cities, Edit Beijing sees the photographer getting closer, as he noted, " I learned something valuable while making those 'cityscapes'. The more visible you are to people in the streets, the more invisible, in a certain sense, you become. So standing in plain sight with my tripod-mounted camera, I became instantly seen, assimilated, and ultimately, overlooked, which as you know, is often a desirable state of being for a street photographer."
