    I just bought a book by her entitled "Revenge". I really love her style and I want to learn more about her. I've been searching the internet for info on her, but it's limited to say the least. Does anyone know much about her or can you point me in the right direction?
    Thanks in advance,
    Ara

    I am doing lots of erotic/BDSM/fetish shots, and EVU is a great inspiration. "Revenge" is a great example on this :smile:

    Ah, no wonder you told us about the book Erotique lately! I am very interested in seeing your photos. Where do you get your models? Are they members of the Church that take part in your ceremonial orgies?

    Yeah, she underexposes and overdevelops. :smile:

    I think she is a former model. She is featured in about every second issue of American Photo. That pretty much exhausts my knowledge about her. Helen Christensen's (another former model) photos are much more to my liking.

    Helena Christensen is the model that was in the Chris Isaac video for the song "Wicked Game", correct? I didn't know she was a photographer. I think I'd like her more in fornt of the lens than behind.

    Yes, she is the girl from the Wicked Game video.
    She has been taking pictures from she wah 16 years old, and became a model shortly after. She has always brought a camera with her around the world while on shootings.

    She has even offered to officially shoot the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.

    they aren't members of the COR. I mostly get in contact with them thorugh S/M and fetish clubs in Denmark. I work mostly with details and seldom need to include the face, so my models are quite anonymous. The fact that they are unrecognizable makes it much easier to get models. I will post some scanned slides in the gallery soon. I have just shot four models in a club, so I have some up-to-date work to show.

    Greetings Morten

    Morten,
    Do you have any of your photos posted anywhere else on the net? I just love the idea of combining fetish and rodinal. Actually, rodinal is a fetish for some.
