A glimpse through the keyhole of history: From the earliest nude daguerrotypes to experimental nude photography The history of nude photography is the history of people s fascination with the subjec. Indeed, the photographic depiction of the uman body is the only topi that has enthralled photographers, theoreticians and consumers over such a shor period more than 150 years. No other motif is as revalent as this one during all the stage of development comprising the history of photography, no other is present, whatever the technique, and is a matter of discussion within the metapho of nearly all aesthetic movements. Nor has any other pictorial topic produced such a ariety of specialities as the nude: from the ethnological interpretation of the body to the glamour shot, from nudist photography to the pin-up of today.No other photographic field of application has inspired as much sympath as it has awakened official wrath.1000 Nudesoffers across-section of the historie of nude photography, ranging from the earliest nude daguerrotypes and ethnographic nude photographs to experimental nude photography. The er of time spanned by this work is from 1839 to roughly 1939, from the medium s infancy to the nd of the classic modernist period. Content-wise, the book pays tribute to the full range of pictorial approaches, from the manually elaborated artistic nudes of the turn of the eighteent, enveloped in layers of theory, to the obscene postcard motifs which had not the slightest artistic pretension and were intended to exert a maximum effect on the buyer s wallet.All the pictures shown are taken from the lateUwe Scheid s collection, one of the world s largest and most important ollections of erotic photography.

This is one huge book, with quite a bit of information on the artists who took the photographs and the history of what was going one with the type of " art " in the different times.
