2. JUERGEN TELLER @ ALISON JACQUES GALLERY – TELLER ON MAPPLETHROPE 

Iconic German fine art and fashion photographer Juergen Teller on display at Alison Jacques Gallery in London. Provocative, slightly awkward and funny, his works can never get mistaken. Here is a bit from himself via Dazed:

Is there something you like about the image/text relationship?
Juergen Teller: I was very interested in showing my work to a broader public – Die Zeit reaches two million people. I felt like I was back in school, with homework to do every week. I started to really enjoy that, and was sometimes able to write two or three in a row when it was flowing. Otherwise on Monday I’d be thinking, ‘Fuck, what am I writing?’

Was narrative always been part of your work?
Juergen Teller: There is always a story to tell, some funny thing like when I shot OJ Simpson – strange, bizarre, boring, exciting things. It’s an adventure when you do a shoot. I believe I invite this openness with people where they do things for me, or tell me things.

Does that come down to what the camera can do?
Juergen Teller: It’s the thing itself. I wouldn’t dream of saying to Charlotte Rampling, ‘Can I kiss you and fondle your breasts?’ You know? But in this adventure we’re doing with the camera, you’re making a fairytale, a visual fairytale…

It gives you permission to step outside what’s accepted?
Juergen Teller: To a certain extent, yeah.
