The Keys to the House.
Photographs by Juergen Teller.
Steidl, 2012. 100 pp., Color illustrations throughout, 9½x11¾".
Unlike many photographers who maintain a strict divide between their commercial and private work, Teller has always
combined the two. Indeed this merging is one reason for Teller’s progressive edge. The Keys to the House contains
recent photographs of Teller’s life at and around his house in Suffolk: landscapes, portraits of family and friends. But
of course Teller’s vision would not be complete without the occasional fashion figure who was entered his personal
world – be it Lily Cole floating like Ophelia, or Vivienne Westwood leaning on a red Mercedes Benz.
