This exhibition featuring Ellen von Unwerth’s 30 years of provocative photography will definitely raise a couple eyebrows. Here, the world’s most desirable women pose sporting the most successful brands and are published in the most famous magazines – and they do it with pouting lips and naked chests.
During these 30 years a never-ending cavalcade of stars have posed in front of von Unwerth’s camera for photo sessions that cannot be compared to any other shoots. It’s all about having fun and blurring the lines between fantasy and reality. Like a film director, von Unwerth creates a parallel universe where everything is possible, while always maintaining her professionalism. Since she took her first pictures during a modeling assignment in Africa some 30 years ago, she has produced a vast amount of incredible images, nine photo books, an almost incalculable number of magazine covers as well as various productions in her career as a film director.
In the treasure of work Ellen von Unwerth has produced over the years there are endless things left to discover. The exhibition Devotion! 30 Years of Photographing Women, made in collaboration with Fototgrafiska, is an exploration of seven different themes: Love, Play, Power, Gender, Lust, Passion and Drama.
This poster, from the playful and provocative exhibition, is a black and white photograph of a woman smoking a cigarette.
