Published to coincide with his show at Kunsthalle Wien. “Juergen Teller’s work is essentially autobiographical. His work has always explored his personal milieu of friends and family and his position at the intersection of fashion and art. For some years he has also used the self-portrait as a ground for personal expression, theatrical role-play and exploring his realtionship to his own history. Louis XV contains one series of photographs that are an intimate tale of lust and excess with his latest muse, Charlotte Rampling. In the gauche surroundings of a hotel room, Teller combines the braggadocio of his nude self-portraits with his on-going paean to woman in a filmic narrative.”
