Ellen Von Unwerth was born in 1954 and is still alive today at the age of 62. Unwerth first found her fame when she first photographed Claudia Schiffer (a German model). Her work has been published in top magazines like Vogue, Vanity Fair, Interview, The Face, Arena, Twill, L’Uomo Vogue and I-D. Most of her photographs have been published in fashion magazines. Ellen has traveled all around to places like: Europe, New York, Los Angeles, and Germany. One of her most favorite places to visit is New York! Unwerth had an odd education experience after she graduated high school, the circus caught her attention in Munich, and she was hired as an assistant, doing magic shows and stunts as well. It was not a degree but it was definitely an experience that will last a lifetime! My favorite picture of hers is the piece of her work in a Vogue ad. It depicts two girls holding hands over a railroad. This reminded me of me and my best friend hanging out and exploring around town.
