Juergen Teller is primarily known for his fashion photography, appearing in publications such as W magazine and Purple and in an iconic series of advertisements for designer Marc Jacobs. Teller’s photographs embrace the idiosyncrasies of his subjects and the spontaneity of the moment. The artist’s technique is characterized by a casual, continuous shooting style using two film cameras at once and a bright flash. In addition to his commissioned photographs, Teller has also created a series of candid portraits of both himself and his friends and family, as well as poetic photographs of subjects such as cracks in the sidewalk and freshly fallen snow.
