Leigh Callaway - Ellen Von Unwerth 5

        She is photographer and director, specializing in erotic femininity. She worked as a fashion model for ten years herself before moving behind the camera, and now makes fashion, editorial, and advertising photographs. I just love her story line. How she learned how to be in front of the camera and also behind it. I would love to do the same. I think know how to move in front of the camera gives you a different outlook when you are behind the camera. 
        This shows more of the editorial side that I would love to venture on. To be pulished in magzines and books would be nice. I would like to combine the art and fashion world as she did in her work. Even more so being able to speck upon topics such as femininity that still plays heavy in our society still to this day. Ellen allows you to be free in front of the lens , even when its sexy its never lewd. I admire her balls to be able to play with the line of lewd and sexy, seduction and porn. She also has short films that she has created, which the performative aspect that she has in her work, makes me love and admire her ideals even more.
