If you haven't seen an Ellen von Unwerth photo, then you haven't seen the latest fashion magazines, advertisements, or music videos. In just a few short years, this Bavarian-born exmodel has captured the attention of the fashion world. Ubiquitous, bold, and imaginative, her work features the faces and bodies of today's top models and celebrities, and gives her famous male counterparts, such as Helmut Newton and Peter Lindbergh a run for their money. What makes a von Unwerth photo? Sex, fun, sex, daring, sex, theater, and yes, more sex.

But von Unwerth's erotic edge often gives way to romanticism, femininity, and charm. Whether light-hearted and campy or moody and provocative, von Unwerth's technical skill and creative flair are always evident. Whether she's borrowing a scene from a classic movie or realizing her own futuristic vision, her confidence and ease behind the camera make her one of the most consistently fresh and fluid photographers working today.

Ellen Von Unwerth was a successful model before she started taking pictures in 1986. Since then she has participated in several photography exhibitions including the 199 I International Festival of Fashion Photography, where she won first prize. Von Unwerth has photographed numerous international advertising campaigns and has published stories in American, Italian and British Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Interview. Von Unwerth has also directed music videos for N'Dea Davenport, Duran Duran, and Salt N' Peppa. Her first book Snaps was published in 1994, and was followed by Wicked and Couples.
