About

Photographer Juergen Teller turned his lens on the fashion industry with his Go-Sees series in 1999. Weary of the hype generated by model agencies desperate to sell him the ‘next big thing’, he decided to take the picture of every girl that came to see him – on the doorstep of his studio. In this interview for TateShots, Teller tells us how the resulting photographs expose the troubling power of the male photographer. He also challenges us to a game of table tennis.
