Ellen Von Unwerth...

I really feel inspired by the work of Ellen Unwerth, I love how her images are so suggestive and sultry yet have no element of distaste. I like how the models used in the images above have an almost grungy feel yet the images are clean with a 'dirty' hidden message. Her work is often featured in Lula magazine, with the top two images being part of story which was used on the front cover. She manages to take images of anything and somehow make them sensual and erotic.

Her latest book Fraulein,(pictured above) which in German literally means, 'little woman', is a book of her own personal images, from her private collection, many of which have never been published before. The book is a celebration of what she considers the sexiest icons of our era wuch as Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer and Dita Von Teese to name but a few. Unfortunately for most, the books retails at £450.00 plus for a hardback version an so what im writing is only what I have learnt via research but it would be amazing to own my own personal copy.
