Juergen Teller has spent the last year carrying out a study of the "Reichsparteitagsgelande", the site of the Nurnberg Rallies, and a place he used to visit in his youth.
The results are a series of images of stone and flora, photographed over the four seasons of a year, in seed, bloom, demise and finally dormant in the snow.
It amounts to a study of mortality, the process of birth, growth and death.
The book combines these works with self-portraits and family photographs through the same period, adding the perspective of the personal and quotidian life cycle.
