For over a decade Juergen Teller has worked with Marc Jacobs on the advertising campaigns for each of the Mens and Womans Marc Jacobs collections, Marc by Marc Accessories and perfumes lines. Tellers idiosyncratic visual style and use of unusual models has been instrumental in establishing what has become one of the pre-eminent fashion brands of our times. Reflecting the intelligence and individuality of the Marc Jacobs brand, the models have included Sofia Coppola, Charlotte Rampling, Meg White, Kim Gordan and Thursten Moore, Michael Stipe, Rufus Wainright, Harmony Korine, Cindy Sherman, William Eggleston, Samantha Morton, Winona Ryder, Roni Horn, Victoria Beckham and Juergen Teller himself among others. This book brings together a selection of images from all the campaigns into a collection that marks how significant this collaboration has been in both fashion and visual culture. Photographer Juergen Teller was born in Erlangen, Germany in1964.He studied at the Bayerische Staatslehranstalt fur Photographie in Munich, Germany. He has lived and worked in London since 1986.
Tellers work in books, magazines and exhibitions is marked by his refusal to separate the commercial fashion pictures and his most auto-biographical un-commissioned work. His work has been published in influential international publications such as "W Magazine", "I-D" and "Purple" and has been the subject of solo exhibitions including the Photographers Gallery in London, the Kunsthalle Wein and the Fondation Cartier pour lart Contemporain in Paris. In 2003 Teller was awarded the Citibank Prize and last year he was asked to represent the Ukraine as one of five artists in the 52nd Venice Biennale. He has also participated in group shows at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Tate Modern in London. Teller has produced numerous monographs, his most recent being Nurnberg and Vivienne Westwood.
