After making his name documenting European youth subcultures, the German artist Wolfgang Tillmans turned to nonrepresentational images that played with the medium of photography in the late nineties. Now collected in Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures (Hatje Cantz, $75), the often painterly results range from Rothko-esque color fields to sensuous, inky explosions.

Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures is available at booksellers and www.hatjecantz.de
