Photographer Juergen Teller Shows a Selection of Best-Known Photographs

NUREMBERG.- Today, Juergen Teller (*1964 in Bubenreuth) is one of the most sought-after fashion, commercial and portrait photographers world-wide. The exhibition in Kunsthalle Nürnberg takes a focused look back, showing a selection of his best-known photographs of Kurt Cobain, Kate Moss or Yves Saint Laurent, as well as examples from the long years of collaboration with fashion designer Marc Jacobs. However, the main emphasis will be on Teller's extensive work groups from the last five years, also including three new photo series produced in 2009 and exhibited here for the first time in Germany:

English actress Charlotte Rampling and Brazilian model Raquel Zimmermann posed in the Paris Louvre's department of antiquity for Paradis, entering into playful competition with Leonardo da Vinci‘s Mona Lisa.

The series Der Schlüssel im Schloss (The Key in the Palace) was taken in the private chambers of Gloria Princess of Thurn and Taxis in Regensburg; the princess' daughter Elisabeth Teller is portrayed in her mother's clothes dating from the 1980s.

Zimmermann is an extensive series of photographs featuring Raquel Zimmermann, taken in Teller's parents' house in Bubenreuth. They continue the photographer's creative investigation into his own origins: here, the family history is unfurled from a new perspective. The series Ed in Japan (2006) and Louis XV (2004) will also be shown in the Kunsthalle. Juergen Teller has developed a sensitive portrait of his young family in the photographs from Japan, while he and Charlotte Rampling staged bucolic scenes at the Paris Hotel Crillon in the series Louis XV.

The exhibition in Kunsthalle Nürnberg demonstrates the great diversity of Juergen Teller's photographic work, which focuses on staging and self-staging, on authenticity and projection. Teller plays confidently with the clichés and "rules" of the fashion and advertising worlds and with the viewer's expectations. These are frequently undermined by a rather off-key humour – as the homepage motif New York, Milan, Paris I’m coming (2004) demonstrates vividly.
