Review of Ellen von Unwerth: Do Not Disturb at Michael Hoppen Gallery

Ellen von Unwerth: Do Not Disturb
Michael Hoppen Gallery
22 June – 22 August 2012

Ellen von Unwerth (born 1954, Frankfurt) was a fashion model herself for ten years before stepping behind the lens. As a photographer, she shot to fame with her pictures of Claudia Schiffer, for the label Guess, in 1989. Since then, she has become one of the world’s most notable fashion photographers, renowned for her provocative and sexy images of models, movie stars and music celebrities. Her current exhibition, at Michael Hoppen Gallery, is small but deliciously decadent, presenting a series of works, shot at the Madonna Inn, LA, portraying women in seductive poses, luring the onlooker into the fictional world that they create.
