The opening party for Ellen von Unwerth Party Time will be held Wednesday the 24th at the Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France.
With Party Time, Von Unwerth, known for her daring and avant-garde style, will open the festivities with a bang of high energy, positive vibes, and iconic images.
Featuring the likes of supermodels such as Cara Delevigne, her selection of vibrant and mischievous photographs is filled with playful and bold women with water in the backdrop. Presented in her signature style which experiments with costumes and vivid colors or sensual monochromatic palettes, the images present a unique take on high-spirited summer glamour.
The German-born photographer began her impressive career as a top model and is now one of the world’s most in-demand fashion photographers. Alongside her regular contributions to some of the most prestigious publications, the artist won first prize at the International Festival of Fashion Photography in 1991, and American Photo Magazine named her as one of the most important people in photography in 1998. In 2017, the artist was the subject of the exhibition “Ellen von Unwerth Heimat,” at TASCHEN Gallery in Los Angeles, coinciding with a book launch of the same name. She was awarded a Royal Photographic Society award in 2020 and an Iconic Photographer Influencer Award in 2021.
The exhibition is a testimony to von Unwerth’s unique artistic flair. Her flamboyant images ignite the momentum for the Festival and set the tone for the following opening nights of the unprecedented event on the Island of St Barth.
