Following a passionate kickoff in Los Angeles, IMMAGIS will show from the 15. September 2017 the exhibition HEIMAT with more than 30 works from German star photographer Ellen von Unwerth. 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. Her images convey a strong love fornature, a seemingly omnipresent religiosity, and a playful approach to the attributes and attractions typical of the region, making a visit to this exhibition both a sensual and visual treat. Von Unwerth’s visual ode to her HEIMAT combines old-world charm with fresh, provocative eroticism, cheerfully subverts traditional gender roles, and shows thateven lederhosen can be glamorous. Viva Bavaria!
