Juergen Teller, a native of Bubenreuth in Franconia, now resides in London, where he has become known as one of the stars of fashion photography and one of its most resolute interpreters of beauty and fashion. He disregards conventions and looks behind the scenes of glamour to show the models with all their personalities and vulnerabilities. Teller serves the world of the beautiful with a critical eye. In the series entitled More, he places Supermodel Stephanie Seymour in her home, surrounded by attributes of her enchanted world. Teller's examination of the private sphere has led most recently to a series that shows him and his family at the site of his roots. The bar in his parents' basement known as Marchenstuberl (Fairy Tale Corner), gives its name to this intense reminiscent work. Marchenstuberl contains the first complete look at the works of the multi-faceted photographer Juergen Teller.
