Publisher's Description

The hard-driving German photo-based artist Juergen Teller s 50th-birthday present to himself was a stay at a European rehabilitation facility. His raw, diaristic images from that stay, presented with a metallic cover in a zine-like format from CFA, Berlin, are intermixed with historical family photographs taken by Teller s father, who
had committed suicide when he was young. A brief essay by curator Francesco Bonami explores Teller s method of dramaturgical shooting as a way of creating a dramatic and sometimes comedic distance between himself and the viewer. In this way, Teller the subject of many of his own images suggests that what we are seeing is not real, but a way someone is experiencing the real. Juergen Teller s work in books, magazines or exhibitions, and often in collaboration with fashion houses and designers, is marked by his refusal to separate his commercial fashion imagery from his autobiographical, uncommissioned images.
