Stephanie Seymour in a bikini poses on a puppy-shaped flower sculpture in the middle of a sprawling lawn. The awkward and comical scene is typical of Jürgen Teller’s “backward glamour” look. The current lot is from a series of intimate portraits of the supermodel shot over two-and-a-half years at Seymour's homes in Connecticut, New York, and Miami Beach. In this photograph Seymour is poised delicately atop a Jeff Koon's giant floral puppy, in the pictorial county landscape.

The German photographer Teller (born 1964) is famous for his fashion photographs, of which many have been published in high-profile magazines such as Vogue and The Face. He is credited as having established the Grunge Look in the fashion world.
His work has been exhibited in several solo shows in important art institutions, such as the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, Paris, France; the Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, Austria; and Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany.
His photographs have also been featured in several significant group exhibitions including Not in Fashion at the MMK, Frankfurt/ Main, Germany; Click Double Click at Haus der Kunst, Munich, Germany; Street & Studio at the Tate Modern, London, England; A Poem About an Inland Sea at the Ukrainian Pavilion at the 52nd International Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy; and Fashioning Fiction at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, USA. Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood have also hired him to shoot their advertisement campaigns.
