An enchanted trip through Bavaria with Ellen von Unwerth
Follow Ellen von Unwerth on a tantalizing tour through her childhood homeland of Bavaria. Amid stunning scenery and charming traditions, you’ll frolic in the company of the most rugged farmhands and luscious maidens, all too ready to share their love for the region, and to discard their lederhosen and dirndls.

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.
