Ellen von Unwerth begun her photography career in 1984 in Paris and she became a key photographer in the nineties through her work for Vogue, The Face, Interview.
Her photographic style is marking the boundaries between the empowered women of the end of the 20th century by her sexuality, emphasized by the mystery created by black and white photography. Masks, shadows, corsets make Unwerth’s photograps to be recognized as unique for a female photographer. She 'captures perfectly intimate, playful style, dancing between erotica and kitsch decadence with many of our era’s sexiest female icons such as Claudia Schiffer, Vanessa Paradis, Monica Bellucci, Kate Moss’ and so many others ( in Dazed Digital).
