TELLER, Juergen. Election Day.
(Gottingen): Steidl, 2009. First edition. Oblong octavo. Unpaginated. (24 pages). An integral element of Vivienne Westwood’s Spring/ Summer 2009 advertising campaign, Juergen Teller’s Election Day features an unlikely collaboration between the doyenne of British street style, Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Westwood’s former assistant/current husband Andreas Kronthaler. Employing Teller’s signature theatrical mis-en-scene, these images–shot on location in Los Angeles–include Vivienne and Andreas’ friends, members of the band Queens of the Stone Age. Escaping all efforts at narrative or categorization, the volume features shots of the protagonists in a golf buggy, Anderson reading Plato’s Republic with a nipple visible through sheer fabric, Westwood and Anderson frolicking in clothes baskets at a launderette and the two beaming in front of a television announcing Barack Obama’s imminent victory.
