Wolfgang Tillmans, the German-born photographer whose retrospective opens at the Hammer Museum on Sunday, has never hung these pieces quite so close before.

Wolfgang Tillmans is already a confirmed art star. The German-born artist, based in London, has exhibited internationally since about 1990 and was crowned with Britain's Turner Prize in 2000. For the last dozen years, books of his work have been published at a clip of about two annually. His first American retrospective, at the Hammer Museum, might also land him a new title, as aesthetic champion of the DIY ethic. The show, weighing in at 300 photographs, is a precious heap of raw ingredients.
