Lincoln Center and Milk Studios aren't the only places fashion's finest will be popping up this Fashion Week. A few illustrious faces are taking up residence on the Lower East Side with the opening of Juergen Teller's exhibit at Lehmann Maupin Gallery on February 10.
Teller—the impish photographer perhaps best-known for his quirky, blown-out portraits of models and celebs for Marc Jacobs' ad campaigns.
Teller studied at the Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Photographie in Munich, Germany (1984–1986). He emigrated to London, England in 1986.
Teller’s work, in books, magazines or exhibitions, is marked by his refusal to separate the commercial fashion pictures and his mostly autobiographical un-commissioned images.
His fashion photographs have been featured in The Face,Vogue (US, France, England, Italy), Another Magazine, Index, W Magazine, Self Service, Details, Purple, i-D and 032c, among others.
Teller is married to UK contemporary art dealer Sadie Coles.
