Welcome to Heimat
An enchanted trip through Bavaria with Ellen von Unwerth
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.
Art Edition (No. 1–100), each with original photo print Tête-à-tête, signed by Ellen von Unwerth.
Also available as three additional Art Editions of 100 copies each, with alternative signed prints, and as a signed Collector's Edition (No. 401–1,900).
