Ellen von Unwerth
Couples (enclosed in an original Kodak photographic paper box from the Unwerth Studio)
Ellen Von Unwerth's work offers a distinctly sexual and playful version of fashion and beauty photography. In addition to her career as fashion photographer, film-maker, and video director, her work has been collected in numerous books and two photo-novellas. "Von Unwerth's unpretentious, intimate photographs reveal a sensibility that lies somewhere between the sexiness of Helmut Newton and the playfulness of Jacques Henri Lartigue." -The New Yorker
