The art and fashion worlds collide when it comes to Juergen Teller’s raw and intimate photographs. Whether it’s an up-close shot of his mother’s head in the jaws of a stuffed alligator or Victoria Beckham piled legs akimbo into a giant shopping bag for Marc Jacobs’ campaign, Teller brings humour and a taste for the surreal to all of his work. Chomping at the bit to see his amazing prints in the flesh, we were blown away to hear London’s ICA would be celebrating the German photography force with a major solo exhibition, Woo! There’s really is no one quite like Teller.

He honed his unmistakeable style in the ‘80s when young London’s fashion bibles i-D and The Face started booking him and soon enough he seduced the big guns of fashion. His stripped away aesthetic won him commissions with the likes of Celine’s Phoebe Philo —a bare-faced Carmen Kass and Daria Werbowy starred in the SS13 campaign— as well as Missoni and Moschino. Glamorous industry lovers aside, his work has not just appeared on the pages of our favourite magazines but at the likes of Tate Modern and the Venice Bienale. Teller sits comfortably amongst the photography greats like of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus and William Eggleston.

The exhibition surveys his entire canon and sees some of his best and most intriguing images. From the shocking Vivienne Westwood stretched out nude, lying on a chaise longue to his adorable intimate shot of his soaped-up pet dog. Amazingly, in these days of heavy airbrushes and post-production tweaking Teller never retouches his pictures.

There’s been a stedy growing love for Teller. His harshly lit technique has bred a whole generation of copy cats who continue to worship at the alter of his over-exposed photography. We must admit we’re enamored with it too! So, for a hearty helping of fashion, art and a little oh and ahhing, head down to the ICA before all the fashion kids get there first! It closes on March 17th so there’s plenty of time to plan a trip.

These images are pretty adorable and after going through this page, I’ve got a thought to get a doll similar to the one in the photograph to my daughter who loves them very much. Hope I could get one from the amazon and I would like to write a review over the design of the dolls through my review of college essay services. Thanks for the share.
