Unlike many photographers who maintain a strict divide between their commercial and private work, Teller has always combined the two. Indeed this merging is one reason for Teller’s progressive edge. The Keys to the House contains recent photographs of Teller’s life at and around his house in Suffolk: landscapes, portraits of family and friends. But of course Teller’s vision would not be complete without the occasional fashion figure who was entered his personal world – be it Lily Cole floating like Ophelia, or Vivienne Westwood leaning on a red Mercedes Benz. Born in 1964 in Erlangen, Germany, Juergen Teller has lived in London since 1986. His influential fashion photography has been published extensively, and solo exhibitions of his work have been held at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris and the Kunsthalle Wien among other institutions. Teller’s books with Steidl include Louis XV (2005), Marc Jacobs Advertising 1998-2009 (2010) and Zimmermann (2010).
