My Home? Ammer Valley!
Points of View

A valley in Bavaria, lakes, meadows, mountains – and home. From the outside, the perfect cliché. But what is underneath the surface? What does “home” mean to people? And how does it shape their lives?

The book “Heimat? Ammertal! Ansichtssache” (My Home? Ammer Valley! Points of View) answers these questions. 19 Ammer Valley natives asked themselves questions about their “Heimatgefühl”, their sense of home and identity. At which point are you considered a local? Can you imagine moving away from here? Close-knit or hedged in – what is your experience in the village community? And how do you feel about traditions?

The book includes answers to these and other questions, portrays the people and their valley with more than 100 high quality photos. It shows their favorite places and tells stories, reflects on the concept of home.

Publisher is Christian Zott. He commissioned the Hamburg photographer Joachim Ellerbrock to explore his native Ammer Valley to find out what makes is so fascinating. Photographs by Joachim Ellerbrock, texts by various authors. (Book in German.)
