This book could be an ode to nineties fashion. It includes more than 115 photographies from Juergen Teller earlier and iconic work, featuring candid portraits of Vivienne Westwood, Kate Moss, Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Chloë Sevigny and Harmony Korine, Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, Kristen McMenamy and more!
This monograph shows a uniform style of raw emotion that has become his recognizable aesthetic. Teller 'plays' with spontaneity and his models to unflattering angles, uses a bright and hard flash, and never retouches his photographs, exposing the myth of idealized beauty that fashion images offers.
In addition, an interesting conversation, in interview format, let you get closer to his work, his life, as well as his creation process.
