ONTD Original: Juergen Teller Must Be Stopped

Feb 25, 2021 21:35

W Magazine has released their annual Best Performances issue, featuring photographs by Juergen Teller. It's gonna be a no from me, babe.

Who is Juergen Teller? He is a German fashion and fine art photographer who is frequently hired to shoot celebrities and models. Apparently "minimalism, beauty of imperfection, "amateur", humanizing" photography is his aesthetic. Like sure, I've been to art school, I can be pretentious sometimes, I've seen the 400 Blows, so I get it.

But this???

Okay but first a disclaimer: He is a legit fashion photographer and hugely influential, blah blah fuckin' blah. Doesn't change fact that he's been acting up for years and I've had it, officially.

He's responsible for:

I'm a simple woman. Everyday I get up, I do my stupid little tasks, send my stupid little emails, and live my stupid little life as best I can in the midst of this pantyhose. One of my stupid little joys is looking at photos of hot people during awards season.

And this fool Juergen Teller has the audacity to do this?????

It's giving me "I just got my first camera and I took it to a college party and my friends are very artsy" teas

There's a weirdly sexual energy to these? Like instead of a regular degular college party you got invited to an orgy and no one told you beforehand. Idk but my skin is crawling either way

Pictured: the man who invited you

In conclusion: bruh

also suggestion for an "awards season" tag, to collect press/pr during awards season that isn't necessarily for one specific show?
