Recently, walking through Paris, I found myself thinking what work I would exhibit in my upcoming museum show in Naples. Handbags, I’m just gonna do a handbag book and a show.
It felt like another Go-Sees book to me. Friends of my girlfriend were asking me what kind of a photographer I am, what I photograph.
I replied: ‘Actually, come to think of it, mostly handbags.’ I always like their astonished and disappointed faces!
I realized through the 30 years of my career, I photographed a hell of a lot of handbags within my fashion work. And as the Americans once said to me, ‘Where’s the money shot?’
I looked at them puzzled. ‘Show me the money shot!’ they repeated.
Here they are: the money shots in this collection of images for my new book.” Juergen Teller
