Famed Mark Jacobs Fashion Photographer Juergen Teller Refuses Miley Cyrus Shoot

marc-jacobs-miley-cyrus

Take that, girl! Celebrity mess Miley Cyrus is at the butt end of an insider fashion industry snub after noted fashion photographer Juergen Teller refused to work with her on a campaign for longtime client Marc Jacobs.

Jacobs explained to Women Wear Daily: “I have worked with Juergen for years and love him as an artist… He just didn’t want to shoot her.”

That’s it by way of explanation, so feel free to supply your own theories. Maybe guilt-by-association paranoia regarding Terry Richardson? Crotchaphobia? Tabloid fodder fatigue? Whatever the case, when Juergen gave Jacobs the “her or me” ultimatum, he chose her.

Juergen Teller

Teller has been a noted fashion shooter since the late 1990s, with spreads in Vogue, W, Details and more; plus exhibits at the likes of New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Venice Bienniale. Celebrity subjects he has deemed worth his time include Bjork, Winona Ryder, Michael Stype and William Eggleston.

The Marc Jacobs campaign was instead shot by British lensman David Sims, who created moody, goth-inspired scenes that may be more effective at selling antidepressants than designer clothes.

    Don’t tell her heart, her achy break heart.
    I just don’t think it’d understand.

  • heeee

    lol

    Hes a big boy, he can pick and chose who he wants to shoot.

    As for Miley being a “celebrity mess”… meh. There are far more messed up celebrities out there than her.

  • superduckz

    Odd really. His style would have been perfect for her current “status”

  • J

    you know it’s bad when a dude know for shooting nothing but boobies and weiners doesn’t want anything to do with Miley…

  • Klotzmanj

    he is a bad photographer… miley should be happy….

    So for you Miley Cyrus has boobies? .__.

  • Bingo

    If you ever need proof that regular people don’t appreciate creativity, technical skill or talent in Photography, just look at Juergen Tellers success.

    “The Marc Jacobs campaign was instead shot by British lensman David Sims, who created moody, goth-inspired scenes that may be more effective at selling antidepressants than designer clothes” – this remark was unnecessary.

    Richardson is a scumbag. Teller is merely a sleaze – like the writer of the article.

    So start your own site.

    I guess he has reached a place where he can pick his clients and say yes or no… but… but… I don’t see what’s so bad about her that made him not shoot her. I mean she is not too “messy” yet and loves the camera…
    I don’t like the photo above. Her pout looks forced and the girl laying besides her is silly and the guy (girl?) in the backdrop should be Photoshop off. His/her silhouettes is just too distracting and not pleasing. Agreed that the concept is not wow for a fashion shoot.

    If you read his comment and relate it to the actual story, you would know that he refused to shoot Miley, which would in no way suggest that MC has boobies.

  • Rob Elliott

    I can’t really dispute this, a lot of his photos are not my style composition and style wise. They are however at miles a head of Terry Richardson.

  • Angel Daniel Sosa Muñoz

    I got scared, for the people like that kind of shots :
    I’m not questioning the creative work of photographer;
    but the social context of the model (MC) is garbage.

    Why another excentric singer like Marilyn Manson* for next campaing?
    Why not a excellent singer, model, beautiful woman and good example like Sophie Ellis Bextor?

    Marketing.. .maybe. But, like a razonable father; I won’t spread a penny If a daugher or son like this kind of mainstream… that’s my opinion.
