Ellen Von Unwerth
Ellen Von Unwerth continues to shoot her subjects (namely super hot women) in her signature colorful, in-your-face style. Her Do Not Disturb! exhibition is now on view through August 31, 2012, at Michael Hoppen Gallery in London, featuring a series she shot at San Luis Obispo's iconic Madonna Inn. Her photos of Claudia Schiffer for GUESS' 30th anniversary campaign, in addition to the ones she shot of Valerie van der Graaf for Lovecat, are maybe among her greatest works. It's nice to see a photographer seem to effortlessly balance fine art and commercial roles, as Unwerth has expertly done in 2012.
