With everything centered around Mercedes- Benz Fashion Week this week, it’s easy to forget that there are other things going on in the ever-happening city. To take a break from the runway and get a little touch of something else yet stay relevant, Juergen Teller is presenting his fifth exhibition, Paradis, at http://lehmannmaupin.com”>Lehmann Maupin Gallery.
Known for his campaigns with http://marcjacobs.com”>Marc Jacobs and http://ysl.com”>Yves Saint Laurent, Teller was originally commissioned by French magazine, Paradis, to create these photographs which will appear in a leather-bound limited edition book available at the end of September.For the photo shoot, Teller was granted an all-access pass to The Lourve where he stripped down his subject such as models Raquel Zimmerman and Charlotte Rampling and took pictures of the ladies lounging naked around the former-French-Royal-Palace-turned-Museum.
While Teller himself is an involved member of the fashion scene, this exhibition seems to be like a commentary on the fashion week festivities. No clothes during fashion week? Perhaps this is as fashion-forward as it gets.
