Attention Book Collectors!
Our Fashion Historian Idol HFGL is selling Juergen Teller’s 1999 book Go-Sees along with 2 surprise fashion magazines from the 60s & 1999, which I can only imagine are amazing!
The book, published in 1999, is currently out-of-print & is being sold for a deal. If you’re interested, message HFGL for more imformation!
Here’s a description of the book:
The studio of photographer Juergen Teller, best known for his fashion pictures, is located in a tiny street in West London. And it is the front door of his studio that somehow seems to play the leading role in this book. During one year, from May 1998 to May 1999, Teller was visited by hundreds of girls, sent to him by agencies for a casting shoot. At the beginning of this book there was a simple idea that struck Teller: why not photograph all his young female visitors and turn the result into a convincing conceptual piece of art photography? The result is striking, sometimes funny, and makes us question the fashion industry and its world of models. We encounter girls, mostly around the age of 16 or 17, presenting themselves to the photographer in the hope of a great career. Sometimes they come alone, sometimes in groups, sometimes accompanied by their parents. Captured in different lights of the changing seasons, but always at the entrance of Teller’s studio, the portraits seem to melt into one single portrait - that of the one and only model, whatever she might look like.

“It’s easier to do an action scene than a love scene. I love fighting. When the camera’s not rolling, I’ll usually punch some of the actors, just for fun.”
- Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty (Best Performances - W by Juergen Teller, February 2013)
“The first part I played was in the Nativity play at school. I auditioned for an angel and didn’t get it. I auditioned for Mary and didn’t get it. So I made up the character of the sheep who sat next to the baby Jesus. I wore a calico head thing that my mom made, and I bleated through the whole thing and got my first laugh. And that was it—I was hooked. That became a metaphor for my whole career: Every time I’ve thought, Oh, I should be Mary, I somehow go and find something offbeat and different.”
- Nicole Kidman in The Paperboy (Best Performances - W by Juergen Teller, February 2013)

“I never get recognized on the street. I’m lucky that way. People see me as the dolled-up movie-star type on the red carpet, but in real life, I don’t look anything like that. I blend easily into a crowd. My husband, Liev Schreiber, is really distinct, and quite often people push me aside to get to him. They’ll say, ‘Isn’t that the guy…?’ and list off all his credits. They will then ask, ‘Can you take a photo of us?’ They have no idea who I am.”
- Naomi Watts in The Impossible (Best Performances - W by Juergen Teller, February 2013)
