Juergen Teller "Woo!" @ ICA, LondonJuxtapoz // Thursday, 24 Jan 2013
One of the most influential photographers of the last 30 years (see all the good Marc Jacobs ads), whose style of the over-exaggerated flash has seen countless followers, Juergen Teller just opened Woo! at the ICA in London this week. The exhibition features a "seamless journey through his landmark fashion and commercial photography from the 90s." A great look into the world of a photographer who has some of the most personal photos of influential celebrity-types ever shot.
From the ICA:
Teller’s provocative interventions in celebrity portraiture subvert the conventional relationship of the artist and model. Whatever the setting, all his subjects collaborate in a way that allows for the most surprising poses and emotional intensity. Driven by a desire to tell a story in every picture he takes, Teller has shaped his own distinct and instantly recognisable style which combines humour, self-mockery and an emotional honesty.
