"Tillim seeks not only the action and drama typical of a journalistic approach, but also quieter scenes, allowing his work to straddle the media and fine art worlds," says curator Karen Irvine on the MoCP website. "Printed in a muted palette, Tillim’s photographs address the idea of faded idealism in an atmosphere that is both melancholy and dreamlike."
MoCP hosts a conversation with Trillim and Krista Thompson of Northwestern's Art History department at 6 pm, Thursday, Jan. 13.
