Ellen Von Unwerth Film & Photography

I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up.

Ellen Von Unwerth. Or at least as much like her as I possibly can be. I don't mean to sound creepy by admiring her work all the time, it's just that all her videos are so perfect. They have sun rays and fluffy dresses with stockings and garter belts. Bike adventures. Rabbits. It's all so magical and carries such a Virgin Suicides sort of mood, the kind that's infectious and likely to embed summer seeds in your soul. And even though most of her videos are real sexual with a burlesque feel, they're still so tasteful and romantic. She's found a perfect balance between femininity and sexuality, and she's by far my biggest inspiration on this whole film (and photography) wave I'm riding right now.

She does a lot of work with Christina Aguilera too which is probably no surprise since leaving her X Tina days and moving on to the vintage, burlesque girl she is now.

These photos are so beautifully brilliant! I love how the first few are so over saturated that the models are just blending into the surroundings.
