“Sex, scandal, tragedy, rumours, truth, sensation, fame, rise and fall. All the glamour, all the shit; the full story, warts and all. Stylish and tasteless at the same time.”
Tabsch is a Dutch popular magazine known for its shameless use of revealing photographs and candid articles about the private lives of the rich and famous. The magazine was founded in 1958 (a full sixteen years ahead of publications such as Privé and Story) by British-Chinese enfant terrible Barnaby Tilt. The Tabsch story came to a sudden end with the unfortunate death of Tilt in 1996.
Now, in 2021 – twenty-five years after the last issue of the magazine appeared – photographer and Tilt connoisseur Milan Hofmans has put together a retrospective exhibition on the turbulent history of the campy, sensational publication that was Tabsch and its iconic founder, master revelator Barnaby Tilt.
