When Is a Fashion Ad Not a Fashion Ad?

When Is a Fashion Ad Not a Fashion Ad? by Cathy Horyn

I have quite a fascination with the photographer Juergen Teller. For me he’s on the same level as Ryan McGinley and and Terry Richardson, guys who create these mythic, dream-like images that show life in such a surreal way. So I was excited to read this article in the New York Times about the German photographer.

From the article it sounds like he has it pretty easy, even though he works his ass off to make Marc jacobs proud of what he does. It’s also interesting to hear that he’s a really funny and genuine guy, it makes me want to meet him. I did a little digging and Juergen’s going to be putting out a new book in the fall called Juergen Teller: Marc Jacobs 1997-2008, which is being published by Steidl. I want this book to come out right now, I’m so excited to read about this. I don’t even care that it’s $75, I need this book so badly.
