"Femininity 0.1" september - december 2011

Born in 1954 in Germany.

Ellen Von Unwerth worked as a fashion model for ten years before starting to photograph. She also directed short films for fashion designers, and music videos for several pop musicians. Her work has been published in magazines like Vogue, Interview and Vanity Fair. Working with both black and white and color, Von Unwerth celebrates, through her photographs, sensuality, femininity, romance, fetishism, humor, kitsch, decadence and ‘joie de vivre’. The models, dressed only in lingerie or with a bright smile, are always remarkable by their deep humanity; some reveal intimate fantasies, others are more reserved.
