Teller has been chosen by the gallery, according to Alison Jacques for his ''provocative and subversive'' reputation for creating works which are the ''antithesis of conventional fashion photography.''

''I am excited to see how Juergen will bring his edge, energy and unique vision to a new reading of Robert’s work.''

Alison Jacques has represented the estate of Robert Mapplethorpe in the UK for 17 years.

There are indeed parallels between the two artists. Like Mapplethorpe, Teller's portfolio features the fashion industry and today's icons of Pop culture captured through an innovative point of view.
