Juergen Teller has got to be one of my favourite fashion photographers. There’s something about his style, his use of flat light which I find so appealing. Perhaps it’s that snapshot – point and shoot feel his photos have. Of fashion (or non) mixed intrinsically with a result which is almost half photo reportage in style.

There’s also his palette of colours (so to speak). Browns, beiges, creams all are often very recurring in Teller’s photos and most of the time, just by that, you can immediately tell a shot is his.

Teller’s exhibition at Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York highlights three of his recent series. It features photographs of Kristen McMenamy, shot in the home of Carlo Mollino, as well as portraits of Vivienne Westwood and intimate portraits of his family and close friends shot in and around his home in Suffolk, England.
