A Supplement to System, Issue No.5. In what was arguably one of the most bizarre pop culture moments of 2015, Juergen Teller, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West teamed up to create a photobook with the appropriate but perhaps slightly prosaic title of Kanye, Juergen & Kim. The images were taken in the grounds at the Château d’Ambleville in France. Upon arriving at the French Renaissance style château, Teller discovered that the location wasn’t quite right for the shoot – despite its beauty. “But when we got there I suddenly thought this beautiful French garden looked too much like their wedding in Italy. It didn’t feel quite right,” he says. “And I’m seeing all this countryside around and I’m thinking, ‘I just want to do it there.’” That, in case you were wondering, was why Kardashian posed against that pile of rubble. As for why the pop culture power couple conceded to the shoot, Teller explains that it’s because people – no matter how rich or influential – bare their souls for him; something that marks the photographer’s work. “They only do it because they see it in me,” he says. “It’s very difficult to explain, but it makes complete sense. I want adventure in my life. I want to do things I haven’t done before. These Hollywood people are so careful of their image and looking right, but there’s a wildness when I come into the photographs. I just want to wade through rivers, climb mountains. And I prevail.”.
