The latest from Juergen Teller and Raquel Zimmermann
Juergen Teller has photographed model Raquel Zimmermann picking pomegranates while dressed to the nines (Marc Jacobs’s S/S 2009 campaign); wandering nude in the Louvre (for France’s Paradis magazine), and perched by a river in the West Indies, decked out in Mongolian lamb (our March 2009 story “Dominica“).
For Teller’s new photography book, Zimmermann (Steidl), the frequent collaborators have gone in a slightly different direction. For this series, Teller shot his muse in his secluded hometown of Bubenreuth, Germany. The images of Zimmermann sprawled corpse-like on a tree trunk and lying semi-nude on Teller’s family dining table during a meal confirm that Teller knows how to go beyond conventional glamour in spinning one of his surreal fairytales. The book will be available starting May 31 on Amazon.
