German star photographer Ellen VON UNWERTH presented her new fully packed book 'HEIMAT' in time for the Oscars at TASCHEN Gallery in Los Angeles

From April 2017, Ellen VON UNWERTH’s book 'HEIMAT' will be available in TASCHEN stores worldwide. For the book, Ellen photographed in beautiful Bavaria in her signature look uncountable magnificent maidens. The result: a 454 page-strong book bursting out of its seams. It just celebrated its unofficial debut in parallel to the glamorous Oscar night at Taschen Gallery in Los Angeles (taschen.com//ellen_von_unwerth_heimat). What grins at us as “an enchanted tour around Bavaria” and catches our eye are sexy-curvy, magical maidens Maiden in captivating Dirndls, captured in picturesque Bavarian landscapes.

“It’s like going back in time,” Ellen tells WWD about her book. “I lived in Bavaria from about age 10 to 16 and when I went back, it was incredible to see all these people who still dress in dirndls and lederhosen. I thought it would be fun to do a book in my way.” TASCHEN tells us about the book: “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. Viva Bavaria!”

The book is available as a limited Collector’s Edition of 1,500 copies, numbered and signed by Ellen von Unwerth, as well as four Art Editionen, of 100 copies, each with signed photographic print. Price: 750 Euro.
