The genre of fashion photography has a habit of repeating itself. We've all seen images that look like an Irving Penn, Avedon, or Turbeville, without realizing someone else took them. New talent without originality is a common sight, especially when opening yet another fashion magazine, or photo/fashion book. Juergen Teller's book, "Go-Sees", places a unique spin on fashion and the photography that helps promote the business. Almost as important as the designer, the model is chosen to not only wear the clothes, but to promote a lifestyle that is akin to the designer's vision. With "Go-Sees", Teller eliminates these superfluous layers, thereby creating a book that concentrates solely on the psychology of the fashion industry in its attempt to find the next new face. Original in both concept and layout, Teller takes a diary approach by photographing a girl or more each day during a year's period. The girl's name and the date her photograph was taken are all that appear below each image - one to a page. Each photograph is taken in or around the doorway of Teller's London studio. These informal, color snapshots (few are black & white) show the girls in their street clothes either before or after the photo-shoot with Teller. This casual snapshot approach further enhances one of the theme's objectives, by showing these `go-sees' for what they really are: girls - not yet byproducts of the fashion industry. The photographs in Teller's "Go-Sees" are more often sad than beautiful. Knowing that only a small percentage of these girls, if any, will make it past the initial photo-shoot, fosters a compassion from the viewer, unheard of in most fashion photography. That these photographs are more documentary in their approach only adds to the book's uniqueness. Add to this, Teller's ability to make each photograph interesting - considering the limitations of his locale - and it becomes clear that "Juergen Teller Go-Sees" is more than just another fashion book.
