The Ellen von Unwerth photo series was inspired by an eclectic all-night party scene. Named 'Berlin by Night,' this spread features a wide variety of characters typical of the German capital's nighttime events. The dark and erotic pictures were shot inside the graffiti-covered walls of a converted power plant.

The models for this Ellen von Unwerth photo series wear looks created by Schwarzkopf stylist Armin Morbach.

Implications - With society so saturated with advertising, consumers have become desensitized to images. The advertisements that affect them now contain shocking or taboo imagery that makes the message memorable. Companies can incorporate these elements into their marketing campaigns to reach their desired demographic.
