Art of the Book - Peaches & Holger Talinski's "What Else Is In the Teaches of Peaches" (2015)




"[Peaches] has teamed up with her longtime tour photographer Holger Talinski to look back at a brazen career that has captured the attention of outsider artists and massive pop stars alike, ranging from Michael Stipe to PJ Harvey to Iggy Pop ... Along with Holger's uncompromising, often raw imagery, the book includes stories from artists who have championed Peaches's work over the years." 
--New York Times T Magazine

"One flip through the glossy new monograph What Else Is In the Teaches of Peaches is all it takes to get absorbed into the post-punk wonderland of pop culture icon Peaches." 
--W Magazine



Photographer Holger Talinski collaborated with Peaches on the book of photographs, What Else Is In the Teaches of Peaches, released on June 2, 2015. 

As well as text by Peaches, What Else Is In the Teaches of Peaches also includes text written by Peaches, R.E.M's irritating singer Michael Stipe, artist, singer and band-destroyer Yoko Ono and irritating actress Ellen Page.

What Else Is In the Teaches of Peaches is published by Akashic Books.












Peaches, born Merrill Nisker in Toronto, is a musician, singer, performance artist, producer, filmmaker, actor, and writer, who has lived and worked in Berlin since 2000. She has released five albums -- The Teaches of Peaches, Fatherfucker, Impeach My Bush, I Feel Cream -- plus the brand new LP RUB . She has collaborated and appeared as a guest vocalist on albums by P!nk, R.E.M., Iggy Pop, Major Lazer, and Christina Aguilera, to mention a few. Her songs have been featured in dozens of films and TV shows including Mean Girls, Lost in Translation, Whip It, 30 Rock, Ugly Betty, South Park, and True Blood

Peaches has performed in more than fifty countries and has constantly toured the world for the past fourteen years. She created Peaches Christ Superstar, where she performed the entire rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar as a one-woman show; and she sang the lead role of L’Orfeo in a production of Monteverdi’s seventeenth-century Italian opera. Peaches’s most ambitious work to date was the mythical autobiographical electrorock stage-show-turned-film called Peaches Does Herself. The feature film debuted at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival and was warmly received at over seventy film festivals around the world.  

Holger Talinski (b. 1981) is a Berlin-based photographer focusing on portrait and documentary photography. He is also passionate about skateboarding, which was the reason he started taking photos in the first place--to document his and his friends’ lifestyle. He studied photography in Bielefeld, Germany, and interned in New York with Benedict F. Fernandez, most well-known for photographing Martin Luther King Jr. Holger’s work has also been commissioned in Europe, the United States, Thailand, and India.
