I have always loved the Ellen Von Unwerth woman: exotic, sexual, powerful, magical, glamorous, and a little untouchable. These are the kind of images that can only be achieved through the careful camera lens. You wont catch Ellen's breed of femme out in the open of reality. Ellen strikes me as the feminine version of Helmut Newton. From the early 90's through today she continues to inspire me both as a photographer and as a style maker. Fashion needs more photography influence that is provoking, attention getting, and not afraid to get a little dirty!
