Overview

Funny, sexy, exotic and a bit scandalous, this book brings together all of London-based photographer Juergen Teller's images for Vivienne Westwood's Spring/Summer 2008 campaign.

Borrowing the theme, The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search For God from George Bernard Shaw's controversial 1932 novel of the same name--which is engagingly excerpted here--this collection has a strangely riveting quality that is enhanced in Teller's suggestive photographs by such props as plantains, tribal masks, tropical birds, machine guns, spears and various exotic animal hides.

Meet the Author

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. Teller's work in books, magazines and exhibitions is marked by his refusal to separate the commercial fashion pictures and his most autobiographical 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 l'art 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'.
