In the run-up to his show at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, Juergen Teller was invited to curate a selection of photographs for the ICA Fox Reading Room, a confined space located away from the main galleries. His initial plan was to cover an area of wall with 'tear sheets' - proof pages relating to his commercial photography.
As the project developed, Teller would eventually plaster the entire space with images spanning a twenty-year period, including family portraits, magazine assignments, recent ad campaigns, landscapes and various personal projects.
The combined effect of seeing his images juxtaposed inspired Teller during the course of his show to launch himself into the production of the book Woo!. Setting itself apart from more conventional exhibition catalogues, this publication brilliantly relays the raw impact of the original installation, unlocking a new and exciting dialogue across an impressive body of work.
