Teller Like It Is

30.12.2011 | Art , Blog | BY:

Juergen Teller’s inimitable and raw style of photography has been helping redefine the genre for over three decades. From crafting a signature look for Marc Jacobs advertisements to his infamous images of Kristen McMenamy, the German photographer’s work is that of a true original.

Now there is an opportunity to get to know his work from a more autobiographical and personal side. An accumulation of his weekly columns for newspaper Die Zeit, consisting of a personally selected image and accompanying explanatory text, Pictures And Words is not only an introduction to the Teller aesthetic, but also an insight into the thought behind it.

For those who are running a bit late on their gift-giving rituals this year, an almost 200-page hardcover book of Juergen Teller’s photographs and musings is a pretty good place to start.

Juergen Teller: Pictures And Words is published by Steidl.
