Bringing Humanity To The Fashion World

-------

Last night, the contemporary art scene in Chelsea was just as buzzing as the stores. And—no surprise—in some pockets there was heavy overlap between the worlds of art and fashion. At Lehmann Maupin Gallery, Juergen Teller opened an exhibition called Paradis, blurring the distinction, as Teller does so deliciously, between commercial and art photography. The subject of his show? A series of portraits of the Marc Jacobs ad man’s past muses Charlotte Rampling and Raquel Zimmermann, shot nude as they lounge and pose in the Louvre. Said the elegant gallerist Rachel Lehmann of the show, “Juergen brings humanity in a very, very strong way into the fashion world and this is, I think, why Marc Jacobs likes working with him so much.”
