Reminiscent of his earlier publication Märchenstüberl, Juergen Teller’s new photographic series, Zimmermann, documents the supermodel Raquel Zimmermann engaging in family events and interacting with Teller’s native environment in Bubenreuth, Southern Germany.
Staying true to his snapshot aesthetic but managing to portray what he calls a ‘surreal fairytale’, Teller captures Zimmermann in a state of complete abandon, pictured lifelessly in the woods, or lying semi-nude on the family table, a sacrificial offering forming part of a Bavarian feast. A narrative akin to the gothic and dramatic style of a Grimm’s Fairy Tale, this story explores themes of suppressed youth and teenage longing.
