Old-world charm combined with fresh, provocative eroticism. A different way of seeing traditional gender roles. And lederhosen worn in a (yep, it’s true!) a glamorous way. Viva Bavaria!, says German star photographer Ellen von Unwerth in her pictures from Heimat book.

And, in September 2017, 30 works from the book could be seen, live and big, on the walls of the Munich Gallery IMMAGIS. Right in time for Oktoberfest, von Unwerth invites viewers on a photographic journey through her childhood homeland of Bavaria. Her lavishly staged series delights with erotically charged images tinged with a touch of nostalgia and full of lust for life.
The Munich Gallery IMMAGIS will open between 15 September 2017 – 11 November 2017 the exhibition HEIMAT with more than 30 works from the book of the same title by German star photographer Ellen von Unwerth.

Ellen von Undwerth worked as a model for 10 years before she became a photographer. And when she did it, it was a blast. Her beautiful photographs – all of them telling an entire story upon the subject captured by the lenses – appeared in a dozen of fashion magazines (Vogue, I-D, Vanity Fair, Interview).
