Ellen Von Unwerth celebrates female sexuality through the lens of provocation in her show Made In America at The Fahey Klein Gallery.   Comprised of unapologetically sexy photographs reminiscent of the hottest films never made, von Unwerth's images stay true to her titillating and cleverly cheeky style.   von Unwerth's ability to extract seemingly candid yet sexually empowering and satirical moments stem from her experience as a former model. 

“The atmosphere on my shootings is fun,” von Unwerth said in 2011. “Almost like a party.” (Virginia VanZanten, “15 Years of von Unwerth,”, 2011)

Enlisting an army of desirable muses:  Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Evan Rachel Wood, Elizabeth Olsen, Paz de la Huerta, Madonna, Rihanna, and Kate Upton (just to name a few) von Unwerth photographs at The Fahey Klein Gallery read like clever snaps from the world's best girls only party.
