Ellen Von Unwerth, initiation à l'esthétique fétichiste, "Revenge"

Connaissez-vous Ellen et ses photographies troublantes, électrisantes?

Ellen von Unwerth est une photographe allemande de renommée mondiale spécialisée dans les photos artistiques de charme. Elle fut mannequin pendant 10 ans avant de passer de l’autre côté de l’objectif et devenir ainsi photographe pour des magazines de mode, comme Vogue, Vanity Fair, etc...

Ellen von Unwerth est connue pour avoir été la première à photographier Claudia Schiffer et pour avoir remporté le premier prix au Festival international de la photographie de mode, en 1991.
Son style est reconnaissable parmi tous : son grain, son cadrage serré, les couleurs vives, les ombres, ou les noirs et blancs d'une très grande énergie offrent un regard différent et original de la mode et de la femme. La série Revenge qui est devenu un classique du genre montre une grande maîtrise et une subtilité dans le traitement de la photo.

Pour un  aperçu, goûtez à Revenge, une histoire des plus sexy en images scandaleuses :)

J'ai toujours trouvé que cette oeuvre avait le pouvoir de décoincer quiconque sur les sujets fétichistes.

Preface
Although Mme. Vidor survived the cable-car crash that devastated the family dynasty, her husband, his ex, her brother and his wife did not. As a consequence of this she is left sole guardian to the latter's offspring. In addition to her own trio of Françoise, Charlotte, and Isabelle, her household now includes Emily, Marie-Louise, and Ivy from her husband's previous marriage, and her brother's two daughters, Mimi and Sarah.
Weakened by shock, Mme. Vidor finds herself unable to exercise the parental discipline now lacking in the girls' lives. She reluctantly lets the care of her unruly charges slip into the hands of her stepsister, the Baroness, a woman the girls hardly know and about whom diabolical rumours abound.
The Baroness, for her part, is eager to take charge of the girls. Her long-held dislike of her stepsister sharpens her desire to discipline and control the new arrivals. Indeed, she would hardly have agreed to the arrangement had she not had an appalling ulterior motive. Her late husband's debts, guaranteed against the estate, have meant severe cuts in staff, and she feels sure her stepsister could not object to the girls--how shall it be put--'earning their keep.'
The girls' vivid recollections of their aunt's splendid masqued balls--though they had been too young to attend them--influence their packing. Casting off woollens and sensible shoes they fill their trunks to overflowing with taffeta gowns, stiletto heels, garter belts, stockings and lace....


Chapter 1: The Arrival
As extracts from the Vidor Diaries will show, such memories as had blossomed in their girlish hearts withered quickly once under the dilapidated yet imposing edifice of the chateau. "...it is not as gay as I recall", writes Mimi, "but at least the chauffer is very handsome and I caught him staring at my legs as he helped me from the auto..."

Chapter 2: The Garden
All morning as the girls shed their clothes in the heat, Marie Louise complains of prying eyes through the trees. Mimi suggests it is the men folk of the village, news of their arrival having no doubt spread quickly through the district. Incensed, their modesty already forsaken, they embark on an erotic medley of lewd lesbian acts by which they hope to give them more than that for which they bargained.

Chapter 3: Baroness's Journal
Ingenious, the spy holes my ex-husband devised through which to watch the maids undress. This facility allows me to watch my sweet Veronique at her toilette. Ah Veronique, you are so obedient, so unquestioning, and yet, do you know my maltreatment of you is all can offer as love? Though I yearn to tell you this, I cannot. Moreover, when I call you to my attendance, I know this very inability will provoke a more than usual amount of my displeasure.

Chapter 4: Capture
It is not hard for Eric the Chauffeur to lure the girls into captivity, he is indeed aided in tying them to the old flogging posts by the girls' own lack of inhibitions; convincing them it is all just a game in which if they would only humour him he will favour one or all with something more than a kiss.

Chapter 5: Degradation Anyone?
Extract from the secret journal of Emily:
It has all been a horrible trick, our invitation here was one into slavery. The beastly chauffeur, whose attentions I can't believe I encouraged, smirked as the Baroness ripped off our clothes. Now we are forced to work in shameful underwear and very high heels that make a dash for the road impossible. Also the locals are all inbred and to throw oneself on their mercy wearing only froufrou bra and panties is to invite disaster. One would rather stay here and be whipped!

Chapter 6: The Education of Marie-Louise Part 1
Extract from the journal of Eric the Chauffeur:
I have chained the one called Marie-Louise to a radiator in a tiny room. The room is stifling with no window open and to increase her discomfort I have turned up the radiator full so that in some way its hissing and sharp metallic clicks should somehow remind her of the sound of my return.

Chapter 7: Restraint
Continued from the Baroness's Journal:
I assembled the girls into the radiator room so that they may witness one-another's punishments. They do say, do they not, that anticipation of pain is much worse than pain itself. No doubt when Eric has finished with them they will be in a position to inform me if this is really so.

Chapter 8: Isabelle
For her infractions, I am obliged to reduce Isabelle's meals still further. A saucer of curdled milk in the morning and stale bread for supper. These victuals will be served on the flags of the scullery where the hounds are fed. In between times--as she has shown herself useless at even the simplest domestic chore--it is to be hoped she fairs better this evening as a foot stool for my guests.

Chapter 9: Discipline
This evening I declared Eric and Laurence might take leave to use the girls for their own caprices. However, I had sudden misgivings the girls might manipulate the situation to escape, and was about to change my mind when I saw the appalling look of lustful intent upon Eric's features... and I could hardly refuse. Stipulating only that the girls remain tightly secured throughout their ordeal.

Chapter 10: The Stable
From the secret diary of Isabelle:
Since being banished to the outhouses time has taken on a surreal quality. After our morning chores we are sometimes permitted to doze with the horses. At night, however we are kept awake by the attentions of the stable boy who floods the manger with electric light under which we have to "Do things to each other" as he puts it, in his singularly grubby way.

Chapter 11: The Education of Marie-Louise Part 2
The Baroness spends all her days with Veronique, leaving Eric and I free hand to discipline the girls. On my part, I must confess, the perverse pleasure I derive from punishing the one called Marie-Louise. Even if she has committed no irregularity and invokes my pity with her tears or her cries, I simply employ the gag or the blindfold to indicate that these matters are of no consequence to my whim.

Chapter 12: Liberty
While plying Emily with champagne, Eric himself has passed out. Kept sober, however, by the dread of Eric's brutal lust, Emily spies the keys slip from his slumbering grip to rest invitingly in his lap. Spying the opportunity for escape, she slowly lowers her trembling mouth to Eric's crotch for what she hopes will be the last time.

Chapter 13: Revenge

Having liberated themselves from the Chateau, thoughts of flight are overtaken by a deadly rancour for the many acts they have been forced to perform at the hands of its hell-born inhabitants. Now having free use of their hands, they feel the raised welts and wealds scored across their thighs and buttocks which read like fiery braille to the touch. These are the hieroglyphs of fate for the Baroness. These are writings on the wall.

Chapter 14: The Tables are Turned
"Oh, goodness," cries the Baroness, "you surely don't intend to..." "Goodness," cuts in Charlotte "has nothing to do with it Baroness. You are, as you see, bound by this rope. The other end of which is attached to the bumper of your Rolls in which we intend to return to Paris. We would however, like to give you lift as far as the old stockade on the village green."

Chapter 15: Victory
Having immaculate manners, the girls write a thank you note.
Dear Aunt, after dealing with your miserable staff, it was such fun to watch the peasants discover you naked and dishevelled in the stocks. Though we were at first disappointed that they couldn't read the sign around your neck asking to be flogged, your constant claims to be the Baroness finally galvanized them into performing their duty. Do hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Love Emily, Isabelle, Marie-Louise, Françoise, Charlotte, Mimi, Ivy and Sarah.

Moïra a dit…

Oh ouiiiii, je suis fan de cette artiste également!
Décidément, ton blog me parle à fond!
J'aime ses clichés soignés, et pourtant comme pris sur le vif, plein de vie, de mouvement, comme pris sans réfléchir parfois.
J'aime leur ambiance rétro et fetish, pleine de controverse, sans être vulgaire.
Merci pour ce billet!

Scarlett Casati a dit…

Merci à toi, je commence tout juste ce blog et c'est très encourageant :)

A très bientôt !
