Ellen von Unwerth at Staley-Wise

Many of von Unwerth's photographs, fashion and otherwise, take place in a casually eroticized world without men, a place where girls just wanna have fun wearing nothing but expensive lingerie.


In this show of color and black-and-white work, men appear only as props or toys for women who show a much greater interest in one another—kissing, cuddling, dancing in the nude. Helmut Newton is the obvious precedent here, but von Unwerth's pictures are far more sensuous; she softens Newton's hard edge with a lively sense of fun and a voluptuousness that recalls Lillian Bassman
