Alison Jacques gallery will be showing a set of three exhibitions of the work of Juergen Teller. From his seminal 90’s work, Go See – a series of images of models sent to his studio in 1998 on a ‘go see’ of which he photographed outside his West London studio to his work photographing Bavarian kids in his collection entitled Bubenreuth Kids in 2017. Made over a 12 month period, Go Sees shows hundreds of photographs of would be models sent to see Teller in the hope of becoming a ‘professional’ model. All the photographs are spontaneous and unedited to show the vulnerability of the young girls trying to emulate the supermodels they desire to be. The exhibition will also show a new body of work entitled ‘A fairytale about a king . . . ‘ an exploration of childhood as told through a fairy tail of a young boy growing up in London that goes on to become a King.
