Before turning to the camera, Ellen von Unwerth was a model. The background lends well to her chosen subject, beautiful women (being one herself) and Fraulein is testament to an unquestionable skill set.  15 years of work are collected in the book, some of the images previously unpublished, and feature a veritable who’s who of super models. Complementing the imagery is an essay from Ingred Sischy, Contributing Editor for Vanity Fair.
