Ellen von Unwerth,
Heimat
@ TASCHEN
Gallery
— 

Blending old-
world charm with
a rebellious edge
and a sly subversion
of traditional
gender roles.
” 

Heimat: 
A possibly
untranslatable
German word,
it expresses a
deep feeling of
belonging and
connection to
one’s homeland. 

The exhibition:
 
Sharing its title with
von Unwerth's limited
edition hardcover,
‘Heimat’ is the former
model / renowned
fashion & music
photographer's first
solo with TASCHEN,
showcasing a new
series of photographs 
revisiting her childhood
Bavarian 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. 

Also featured: 
A curated selection of
prints from throughout
von Unwerth's career,
in collaboration with
the Fahey/Klein Gallery
