About

Mysterious black and white picture of two models wearing black masks.
One is holding her finger in front of her mouth.

Ellen von Unwerth - the female Helmut Newton - is one of the most famous and influential photographers in the world. Her artistic achievements have been honored with truly great photography awards. She discovered famous models like Claudia Schiffer and Eva Herzigova, creating worlds of imagery with them that have already gone down in the history of contemporary photography and are now an integral part of our everyday aesthetics.

Von Unwerth creates imagery of women who, consciously sensual and playful, put the observer under their spell. Using elements such as fantasy, humor and irony, she skillfully highlights the beauty of woman, creating exciting pictures with a narrative character.

Ellen von Unwerth has been published in all outstanding magazines and her photographs have been widely exhibited in the great museums of the world such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art/NY, the MoMA/NY, the Deichtorhallen/Hamburg, just to name a few.
