In his editorial and fine-art photography, Juergen Teller captures his subjects in candid, occasionally unglamorous poses that emphasize rawness and spontaneity over mystery or perfection. The photographer often uses unconventional angles and harsh lighting to capture his sitters. He tends to avoid any digital retouching that might make their portraits more conventionally beautiful. Teller has shot for magazines including W, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vanity Fair. He has also exhibited in New York, London, Tokyo, Paris, Berlin, and beyond, and his work belongs in the collections of the Centre Pompidou, the International Center of Photography in New York, and the National Portrait Gallery in London. Teller has also shot campaigns related to fashion brands including Balenciaga, Calvin Klein, and Saint Laurent, and he has produced a number of films.
