Ellen von Unwerth
Ellen von Unwerth is an artist, fashion photographer and filmmaker. TASCHEN and other prestigious publishing houses issued several photography books by her. Having worked as a fashion model herself before, she became internationally known through her exquisite feeling for a new perspective of the female within a formerly strictly male-dominated field.
Ellen von Unwerth’s (*1954, Frankfurt am Main, Germany) photographs have been widely exhibited internationally including in Archaeology of Elegance (2012), Fashioning Fiction, exhibited at MoMA/Queens in 2004, and The Model as Muse, exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (2009).
