Publisher's Description

Victoria Beckham trapped in a shopping bag, Joan Didion in shades, Charlotte Rampling in the nude — just some of Teller's iconic images.

One of the world’s most sought-after photographers, Juergen Teller (born 1964) bridges the worlds of fashion, advertising, art, music and celebrity with an unmistakable mix of irony, honesty and anti-establishment flair. This magazine-style volume captures Teller’s visual universe to date.

Employing portraiture, still-life and landscape photography, Teller’s highly intuitive work exposes clichés, champions the everyday and recasts traditional notions of beauty. “This beauty ideal is everywhere,” Teller complains. “You can’t escape it?TV, wallpaper, posters, billboards, magazines. They put on these crazy perceptions about what people should look like. It’s really shocking the way everybody is striving for this one thing, this ultimate beauty, but what is it?” Stripped of the glamour of the fashion world, his sitters often find themselves in unexpected, sometimes disturbing contexts. Autobiography is also a strong force in Teller’s candid, humorous and endearing photos.
