BERLIN — Germany’s capital is known equally well for its creativity and its all-night party scene. That combination inspired Ellen von Unwerth’s latest photography series, “Berlin by Night,” sponsored by Henkel hair care brand Schwarzkopf.
The German mistress of the lens, known for her erotic images, shot models Coco Rocha, Lydia Hearst, Karolin Wolter and Eliza Cummings inside Berlin’s grittty, graffiti-encrusted Tresor club, a former power plant turned into one of the city’s cult venues for electronic music.
“The club breathes Berlin,” said von Unwerth.
The four models wear trend looks created by Schwarzkopf stylist Armin Morbach and combine high tech and street: the bombshell “Blondage,” a Bieber-esque “Boyfriend,” blooming beehive “Dimension X” and russet sultry “Spice.”
The styles will be used for the Schwarzkopf Looks 2011 visual campaign. Thirty-three additional images from the shoot, which feature the models pos
ing in club scenes with burlesque performers and underground artists, are on display at edgy Düsseldorf museum NRW-Forum through Feb. 13.
