"Women are not just there to be admired….

……They’re there to be enjoyed” Ellen Von Unwerth

I love photographs. LOVE them. Photography is by far my favourite artform, and one of the many things I want to be able to do better.

I can spend hours thumbing through pages of photographs, looking at the composition, the subject, the light…

And if I had to choose one female Photographer to take pictures of me? It would be this lady – Ellen Von Unwerth.

Born in Germany in the 50’s, Ellen worked for the circus as assistant to the knife thrower before being spotted by a model agent in Frankfurt. After 10 years she swapped sides and began a new career as a Photographer, and I’m bloody glad she did.

Her pictures make me smile. There is a playfulness in each and every one, whether she’s shooting major celebrities or heading of down her favoured S&M route. The pictures are classy and fabulous…so I have all her books on order!

So before I get myself out into the sunshine to do absolutely nothing by the river for a while, I wanted to share these gorgeously amusing images that brought a smile to my face this pointless Saturday morning…
