I’m very inspired by the work of photographer Ellen Von Unwerth…her photos are very provocative, sometimes with blatantly sexual overtones…sometimes more subtle. The photographs, many in black and white with a grainy look, have a timeless vintage appeal. They’re very theatrical, like stills from a quirky silent movie.
Her career has spanned from circus worker to model to photographer – a life path that clearly allowed many opportunities for inspiration.
“(Women) are not just there to be admired, they are there to be enjoyed” ~ Ellen von Unwerth
