Juergen Teller, the legendary German photographer who joined fashion and art in his work on a genius way, will release on the 31St of Mai 2010 his latest photography book called: “Zimmerman”. This book will feature his new photo series which documents his muse the supermodel Raquel Zimmermann engaging in family events and interacting with Teller’s native environment in Bubenreuth, Southern Germany. Holding true to his signature snapshot aesthetic while nonetheless managing to construct what he describes as a “surreal fairy tale”, a narrative akin in style to the Gothic and dramatic Brothers Grimm fairy tales.
Teller captures Zimmermann in a state of seeming abandon, in the woods or lying semi-nude on the family table during a meal. It are suggestive images, elegantly dressed up with a touch of eroticism, and which tell a fashion tale which is going beyond conventional glamour.
