She’s insatiable!

Olga returns for more lustful adventures with a colorful cast of characters

Art Edition limited to 125 copies, each with the signed and numbered pigment print The Widow, 2012, by Ellen von Unwerth.

Olga is back! After a first foray with Bettina Rheims for the 2008 limited edition smash hit The Book of Olga, now she teams up with Ellen von Unwerth for The Story of Olga, a photographic narrative tracing the journey of a young widow, Olga, who after the death of her wealthy, elderly husband, is overtaken by an insatiable lust. She searches for love only to find it in the arms of an unlikely source, far from the riches and extravagance to which she is accustomed.

It is Olga’s quest that makes this fairy tale highly untraditional: she is a heroine who is not afraid of her lust, and it is her sensuality that leads her to the happy ending she so desires. Set in a glorious château, replete with all the trappings of wealth and glamor, this collaboration between Ellen von Unwerth and Olga Rodionova brings to life the enviable luxury of both fairy tales and modern desire.

Von Unwerth’s team of artists on this project include London born Anna Trevelyan, a young stylist who creates a unique and eyecatching fascinating style that is dark, beautiful, provocative, and sexually-charged, and French master set designer & prop stylist extraordinaire Fabienne Eisenstein, who is responsible for creating the pagan rituals and extravagant dinner scenes at the château.

Also available in a second Art Edition with an alternative print.
