Juergen Teller: Handbags


Featured image is reproduced from 'Juergen Teller: Handbags.'

The master fashion photographer makes a gorgeous typology of the ultimate accessory

“Friends of my girlfriend were asking me what kind of a photographer I am, what I photograph,” Juergen Teller says, apropos of his latest book. “I replied: ‘Actually, come to think of it, mostly handbags.’ I always like their astonished and disappointed faces! I realized through the 30 years of my career, I photographed a hell of a lot of handbags within my fashion work.”

This enormous 600-page book of photographs of handbags depicts the accessory as you might imagine it through the lens of Teller, colorful and well lit, but nonetheless as you have never seen handbags before. Numerous models, actors and infamous individuals are featured here, including Michael Clark, Cindy Sherman, Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood, Sofia Coppola, Tilda Swinton, John Malkovich and Victoria Beckham. Teller himself sees the book as akin to his 1999 volume Go-Sees, in its direct serial character.

Demonstrating how Teller has reshaped the field of fashion photography since he first emerged in the 1990s, Handbags will delight the aficionado of contemporary fashion and of photography alike.

Juergen Teller was born in Erlangen, Germany, in 1964. His work has been published in influential magazines such as Vogue, System, i-D, POP and Arena Homme+, and has been the subject of solo exhibitions, including those at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris and Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. Teller won the prestigious Citibank Photography Prize in 2003, and from 2014 to 2019 held a professorship at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste Nürnberg. His books with Steidl include Louis XV (2005), Marc Jacobs Advertising, 1998–2009 (2009), Siegerflieger (2015) and The Master IV (2019).

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

AnOther

Francesca Gavin

[Juergen Teller: Handbags'] recurring theme is a perfect motif to highlight Teller’s approach to the image: humorous, provocative, narrative driven and very alive.

Interview

Devon Ivie

Consider this the natural successor to Us Weekly’s “What’s In My Bag?” series. Teller, the king of minimalist style, has dedicated his latest monograph to the item he believes he’s photographed the most of everything: Bags, baby!

L'Oeil de la Photographie

Introspective

Amy Collins

Removed from their original commercial context and viewed now from a slight chronological distance, his images, especially when seen in aggregate, have taken on aesthetic and psychological dimensions.

Celebrate NY Fashion Week with Juergen Teller's handbag "money shots"

Featured spread is reproduced from Juergen Teller: Handbags, the 608-page handbag book to end all handbag books. "I began photographing fashion about thirty years ago and slowly, over the years, the handbags started to creep into my pictures," Teller writes. "Nowadays it seems like in every fashion ad a model is clutching a handbag. I remember when I started working in America they asked me 'Where's the money shot?' I looked at them puzzled. 'Show us the money shot!' they repeated. Here they are, the 'money shots.'" continue to blog
