His work is included in numerous collections around the world, including the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris; International Center for Photography, New York; Pinchuk Art Centre, Kiev; and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, among others. The artist lives and works in London, England.

In 2012, renowned curator Francesco Bonami organized Juergen Teller’s first solo exhibition in Italy. Installed in the majestic reserve apartments of the Palazzo Reale, The Girl With the Broken Nose comprised nine photographs of monumental proportion. Each measuring six feet by ten feet, the works on view were the artist's largest to date. In January 2013, the Institute of Contemporary Art, London opened a retrospective of the artist’s work.
