Gerhard Steidl, founder of the German art publisher, has never seen a soccer game. So when Juergen Teller approached him with hundreds if not thousands of images chronicling outbursts of spectator shenanigans from last summer’s World Cup, he thought, “how strange and bizarre. This is how people are when they watch a football game?”
For Reely and Truly, London-based photographer Tyrone Lebon pays tribute to the medium by tracking down and interviewing dozens of artists and photojournalists, including Juergen Teller, Petra Collins, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Arne Svenson. Tracing a non-linear narrative, the film moves in hallucinatory frames from one photographer to the next, their disparate lives threaded together by recorded conversations between the filmmaker and his father, fashion photographer Mark Lebon.

Screamed at by Gordon Ramsay, terrified by OJ Simpson, and terrorised by Björk’s son... For the fashion photographer Juergen Teller, it’s all in a day’s work. He tells the stories behind his pictures‘Juergen Teller: Woo&rs
You can't eat 'reach' and we can't pay salaries with 'brand awareness'. I don't pretend to know other people's business models or strategies.

Penny Martin, Editor, SHOWstudio: There is an image in your current exhibition at Modern Art where you and your wife are pictured standing either side of an estate car, much in the way that Mrs and Mrs Andrews stand in front of their country estate in the Gainsborough painting. Are you asserting yourself as the new society painter? Juergen Teller: First of all, it's not an estate car. It's a Mercedes 500CL. It's for me the perfect family portrait where I've put everything: the car, the wife and the kid. It's a happy photograph. It's my state of mind.
Juergen Teller, the photographer, has spent much of this summer Tuesday editing a shoot commissioned by W Magazine about the art world in New York. The star of the shoot is the 47-year-old actress Tilda Swinton, who has been dressed up as everyone from an artist to a gallerist to an insecure collector mid–Botox procedure. She’s accompanied by artists like Rachel Feinstein and collectors like Renée Rockefeller. The whole thing looks fairly dark; the lighting is not gentle or flattering, and if any of the subjects has a pore, or a sagging breast, well, there it is.
