With his raw and gritty style, Juergen Teller has successfully navigated both the art world and commercial photography since beginning his career in the late '80s. Teller doesn’t constrain his work to traditional standards of beauty or taste so there is a sense of liberation and freedom in his work. The Hotel Il Pellicano series captures images of chef Antonio Guida’s extravagant menu items at the Hotel Il Pellicano on the Tuscan Coast in Porto Ercole, Italy. The glistening, candy-colored dishes conjure a feeling of decadence bordering on the grotesque. The photographs evoke desire: they represent luxury and turn the act of consuming food--one of the most basic necessities of life--into a lavish and over-the-top experience.
