"Prominent German photographer Juergen Teller's first published monograph includes 200 illustrations of his earlier work, featuring candid portraits of Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood, Linda Evangelista, Patti Smith, Stella Tennant amongst many others. It includes a conversation/interview between Teller himself, art critic Neville Wakefield and art director and stylist Venetia Scott.
Juergen Teller’s photographs embrace the idiosyncrasies of his subjects and the spontaneity of the moment, successfully navigating both the fine art and commercial world since beginning his career. Teller does not distinguish between his commercial and non-commercial work, treating all of his subjects—family members, celebrities, and himself—with a uniform style of grit and raw emotion that has become his iconic and recognisable aesthetic. Although he often parodies fashion photography, he is very much a participant in it, promoting the industry as he criticises it. Teller subjects his models to unflattering angles, uses a bright, harsh flash, and never retouches his photographs, exposing the myth of idealised beauty that airbrushed fashion images offer."
