Reminiscent of his earlier publication Märchenstüberl, Juergen Teller’s new photographic series, Zimmermann, documents the supermodel Raquel Zimmermann engaging in family events and interacting with Teller’s native environment in Bubenreuth, Southern Germany. Staying true to his snapshot aesthetic but managing to portray what he calls a ‘surreal fairytale’, Teller captures Zimmermann in a state of complete abandon, pictured lifelessly in the woods, or lying semi-nude on the family table, a sacrificial offering forming part of a Bavarian feast.
A narrative akin to the gothic and dramatic style of a Grimm’s Fairy Tale, this story explores themes of suppressed youth and teenage longing.
The work of Juergen Teller, born in Erlangen, Germany in 1964, has been published in influential international publications and has been the subject of solo exhibitions including the Photographer’s Gallery in London, the Kunstalle Wien and Fondation Cartier in Paris.
In 2003 Teller was awarded the Citibank Prize and in 2007 represented the Ukraine in the 52nd Venice Biennale. Teller has produced numerous monographs with Steidl.
