“I shoot a lot,” says (Ellen) Von Unwerth, sitting in the Chateau lobby with a tall glass of soda water, her hair a stylish tangle of blond waves and curls. “I shoot almost like filming. When I go through my pictures on the computer, it’s like I’m watching a film. There’s lots of movement, lots of things going on. There are celebrities and supermodels in the pictures, but also masks and high heels, often with a cigarette smoldering between a pair of glossy lips, and sometimes blindfolds, whips and long strands of pearls. Her current exhibition at the Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles is “Made in America,” a collection of pictures of the famous and beautiful, and scenes otherwise connected to the culture here.
“I love when people are living in front of my camera instead of posing”-
Unwerth photographed Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga, and Raquel Welch. Follow your dreams. Read the whole article about the artist, model, and photographer at LATimes.
