When published in 1999 one could hardly know that this book would become legendary. Taken over a year in the doorway of his London studio, Juergen Teller’s portraits of models, most of them unknown, are a record of the “go-see”, a term describing as an aspiring model and her vetting by a photographer. Go-Sees is not about fashion but about the individual model, her character and place in the world, the conflict between female beauty and its social role, as well as the photographer’s complicity in a process that reduces women to idealized abstractions. This book is both Teller’s uncompromising journal and poignant engagement with the reality behind the glamour of the fashion industry.
