Juergen Teller's Clothes-Free ‘Paradis' Photos at the Louvre

In reality, you will probably never see a naked person at the Louvre. With Juergen Teller’s newest collection of photos called ‘Paradis,’ however, you get to see exactly that—and not just one person, but two.

Known for his photography for Marc Jacobs and Yves Saint Laurent, Juergen Teller photographed two models, Raquel Zimmerman and Charlotte Rampling, utterly nude in various spots inside the Louvre (Teller was granted an all-access pass). In the photos, the models don’t pose so much as casually lounge—as if it were totally normal to be completely unclothed at the former French Royal palace.

Teller was originally commissioned by French magazine, Paradis, to create these photographs for a leather-bound limited edition book, but the ‘Paradis’ exhibit will also be presented at the Lehmann Maupin Gallery. Stats for Museum Nudetography Trending: Older & Buzzing
