About the Author:

Ellen von Unwerth, born in Austria and now living in New York, is the first to legitimately claim to be Helmut Newton's successor in women's erotic photography. In addition to Newton's crystal-clear, often frozen pleasure she applies her eyetwinkling, feminine and zesty joie de vivre and her alertness that she deploys to capture the dreams of others.
