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.Collector's Edition of 1,500 copies (No. 401–1,900), each numbered and signed by Ellen von Unwerth.
