Ellen von Unwerth: Heimat
Collector's edition of 1,500 copies.
Ellen von Unwerth's puckish humour pervades the pages of Heimat, an enchanted tour around Bavaria.
Ellen von Unwerth worked as a successful fashion model for 10 years, before picking up a camera herself and becoming one of the world's most in-demand fashion photographers. In Heimat she revisits her childhood homeland to shoot scenes of Bavaria's undulating fields and mysterious forests, indulging in the region's age-old traditions.
In this limited collector's edition, with text by Mark Schulz, von Unwerth's heroines demonstrate the attributes and attractions of the region. 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 and laced with an abiding love for a proud and beautiful region.
