Ellen von Unwerth. Heimat


Welcome to Heimat

An enchanted trip through Bavaria with Ellen von Unwerth

Ellen von Unwerth’s puckish humor pervades the pages of Heimat, an enchanted tour around Bavaria. The renowned fashion and music photographer revisits her childhood homeland to shoot a posse of gorgeous girls out for fun and adventure amid the region’s undulating fields; age-old traditions; and deep, mysterious forests.

As they happily discard their dirndls and run riot across the countryside, von Unwerth’s heroines demonstrate the attributes and attractions of the region, whether munching on pretzels, striding out across pristine pastures, or seducing lederhosen-clad farmhands (and each other). Blending old-world charm with a rebellious edge and a sly subversion of traditional gender roles, Heimat bursts with fresh, provocative eroticism, tied up with wit, laced with an abiding love for a proud and beautiful region.

The photographer

Ellen von Unwerth worked as a top fashion model for 10 years, before taking up the camera and becoming one of the world’s most in-demand fashion photographers. Her work has featured in countless magazines, including Vogue, Interview, Vanity Fair, and i-D, while her advertising campaigns include Ralph Lauren, Christian Dior, L’Oréal, Thierry Mugler, Uniqlo, and most notably, Guess.
