An Object of Beauty
on 24 February 2010
This book is an artwork, pure and simple. Limited to only 1700 copies, all signed by Ellen. It is the size of a table, comes housed in an exotic reptillian black hard case, and contains nearly 500 pages of outrageously stunning, inventive, and unique images of many icons from the last 20 years.
Unwerth has a stunning talent of combining carefully staged, composed, lit scenes, and then introducing a mischievous spontaneity to them. In my opinion one of the most talented, not to say fun, photographers of our time.
The Helmut Newton Sumo first print, which this book's design and limited print run is based around, now sells for £10,000. As with art, this book is also a sound investment, and an object to be treasured.
