This is the newest book in Juergen Teller’s original and beloved “Masters” series. Teller made his first Master in 2005 as an homage to anything and everything he believes is a master or masterful—be it punk rock icon Iggy Pop, actor Gillian Anderson, football manager Carlo Ancelotti, or even a simple vase of flowers—as well as a tongue-in-cheek recognition of himself as the master of his photographic identity. The concept was simple: to create an ongoing collection of humble books, each at the same small size, with no text and as little design as possible—an antithesis to the standard overblown coffee-table book.
Like past volumes in the series, The Master V presents an unpredictable mix of Teller’s eclectic photography: be it his unorthodox fashion work, still lifes, landscapes, portraits, or images that move between these genres. Featuring subjects including chess grand master Garry Kasparov, editor-in-chief of British Vogue Edward Enninful and fashion designer Demna Gvasalia, The Master V reveals some of the fascinating personalities most inspiring to Teller at this moment.
