Juergen Teller. Nürnberg

Juergen Teller spent a year carrying out a study of the Reichsparteitagsgelande, the site of the notorious Nurnberg rallies, and a place he used to visit in his youth. The results are a series of meditative images of stone and flora, photographed over the four seasons of a year, in seed, bloom, demise, and, finally, dormant in the snow. It amounts to a study of mortality, the process of birth, growth and death. The book combines these works with self-portraits and family photographs through the same period, adding the perspective of the personal and quotidian life cycle to a site that has world-historical importance.
