One of my favourite photographers pairs up with one of my favourite magazines. 032c Workshop / Joerg Koch is pleased to present “Men and Women,” an exhibition of new works by photographer JUERGEN TELLER. Three series of portraits were selected for display in the space’s vitrine: two, shown here for the first time, deal with the masculine image, the coming into being and disappearance of a virility; a third, photographed in 2009, contrasts these portrayals with a feminine power. Teller’s five year-old son, Ed, poses as he lifts weights, runs on a treadmill and spins on a stationary bike at a hotel gym in the Maldives in late 2010.Next to Teller’s inheritor, we find his ostensible forebear: William Eggleston, pioneer of American color photography, now seventy-one. Photographed at his home in Memphis, also in 2010, Eggleston, too, gesticulates, balancing a drink in one hand as he plays “air piano” with the other. Between these two polar generations of male expression presides a serene Vivienne Westwood, portrayed in the nude as she reclines on a divan, timeless and smiling.
