The exhibition spans more than 30 years of iconic photographs by Ellen von Unwerth. Her work has graced the front covers of Vogue, ELLE, Glamour and many more. Her work on fashion editorials, short films for fashion brand like Chanel, Dior, Rolex and Azzedine Alaïa, and advertising campaigns have shifted fashion photography into the art world. With her photographs now being included in some of the world’s most important fine art collections and has been exhibited internationally.

She has published nine books over the years each of them an absolute delight to go through. They are – Snaps (1994), Wicked (1998), Couples (1999), Revenge (2003), Omahyra & Boyd (2005), Fräulein (2009), DieSpieler (2010), The Story of Olga (2012), and Heimat (2017).

• Bavaria – From Ellen’s latest book Heimat. A humorous exploration of the German imagery, within the Bavarian countryside and its traditions,

• Frivolities – Selection of photos that span Ellen’s career that encapsulate her “emancipated eroticism”, combining high fashion and female playfulness.

I have now added a Shop section to my menu, where you can find fashion books and DVDs. Below is a selection of books and DVDs that I have personally purchased and love. They have served as an endless source of reference that I treasure.

I hope to add more to the collection as time goes on, but for now I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
