Photo Chat USA : Ellen von Unwerths 'HEIMAT' Opening und TASCHEN Collector’s Edition Book Präsentation in der TASCHEN Gallery in Los Angeles

Ellen von Unwerth celebrated the opening of "Heimat", an exhibition of her new photo book. GoSee and GlamPR.com joined the party at the TASCHEN Gallery in Los Angeles (GoSee reported). Fashionistas and models, partially dressed in Lederhosen and dirndl - a wild mix of fun people, almost like a mirror of Ellens colorful world. Celebrity guests such as Arnold Schwarzenegger said hello. Roberta Wagner rockstar stylist to the stars graced the crowd.

“Heimat” is a German word best understood as a deep feeling of connection to one’s culture and social environment, a sense of home if you will. The title is befitting, as the content of her photo book clearly pays homage to Unwerth’s Bavarian roots; of course through the sexy, subversive and playful lens she is iconic for. The exhibition comes with a 454-page signed and limited TASCHEN Collector’s Edition book of the same name. The exhibition also showcases a curated selection of iconic Ellen von Unwerth photographic prints from throughout her career in collaboration with the Fahey/Klein Gallery.

Ellen von Unwerth worked as a top fashion model before becoming one of the world’s most in-demand fashion photographers and directors. Her editorial work has been featured in publications such as VOGUE, and Vanity Fair and in major advertising campaigns for Chanel, Dior, John Galliano, Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret, Agent Provocateur, and Diesel. Her erotically charged images of supermodels and female musical artists.

Erhältlich ist eine limitierte Collector’s Edition, nummeriert und von Ellen von Unwerth signiert, sowie vier Art Editionen, auf jeweils 100 Exemplare limitiert, mit je einer Farbfotografie. Man kann natürlich auch nur das Buch erwerben. Kostenpunkt: 750 Euro.
