Nobuyoshi Araki & Juergen Teller: Leben und Tod

Text by Juergen Teller.

Nobuyoshi Araki & Juergen Teller: Leben und Tod

Two legendary photographers meditate on death, memory and ritual

The latest collaboration between these two seminal photographers, Leben und Tod is the culmination of their joint exhibition at artspace AM, Tokyo, in 2019. This intensely personal project concentrates on Juergen Teller’s (born 1964) series Leben und Tod (Life and Death), which reflects upon the death of his uncle and stepfather Artur, juxtaposing photographs of his mother and homeland in Bubenreuth, Bavaria, with symbolic images of fertility and life on holiday in Bhutan with his partner Dovile Drizyte.

Inspired by this series, Nobuyoshi Araki (born 1940) asked to photograph Teller’s “childhood memory objects,” items of particular emotional significance to him and his parents. Teller eagerly collected such personal gems, among them toys, a porcelain figurine and bridges made in the family’s violin workshop; the resulting images by Araki are haunting yet playful, creating an intriguing narrative alongside the original story.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Photobook Journal

Gerhard Clausing

This book thus becomes a series of bridges, from Teller to Araki, then back to Teller, and now to us, as visual and emotional participants. What superficially could be mistaken for a family album takes on a higher meaning – the melding of personal approaches of each of these photographers, combining elements from two cultures to a commonly shared experience, can have meaning for all of us as the details are contemplated [...] this photobook is an interesting challenge that takes us from the personal to the universal. Take a good look inside it and inside yourself.
