Ahead of his conference at ECAL on February 11, 2015, the artist and photographer Juergen Teller visited Fine Arts Master students at their studio, to answer their questions and discuss their works. A group of photography students also participated in this masterclass.
Born in Erlangen (Germany) in 1964, Juergen Teller studied at Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Photographie in Munich, before moving to London in 1986. He is known to navigate between art and commercial photography, blurring the boundaries between his commissioned works and more personal images. He has published over thirty artist books and he exhibits internationally, with solo shows at venues including the Photographers' Gallery and the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, Kunsthalle Vienna and Fondation Cartier in Paris. His photographs are regularly published in magazines such as POP, Die Zeit, 032c, Purple, Self Service and W Magazine. He also collaborates with numerous brands among which Céline, Helmut Lang, Louis Vuitton, Marc jacobs, and Vivienne Westwood.
