(Ellen von Unwerth)
Ellen von Unwerth’s “Kissing Booth” (2002)

“Shooting film is a little bit more exciting. It’s more precious, and it’s more technical. You take it out and even the assistant is proud. Everything seems to be more electric. With digital you shoot and shoot, and it doesn’t cost anything. The moment is not as precious.”

-Ellen von Unwerth in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. An exhibition of her photographs, “Made in America,” is on view through January 4 at L.A.’s Fahey/Klein Gallery.
