Un secolo di stimoli, questa collezione di 1.000 fotografie erotiche dal 1839 al 1939 comprende tutte le pose più audaci che gli artisti di ogni epoca potessero immaginare. Tratte dalla collezione del defunto Uwe Scheid, un rinomato archivio di immagini suggestive, queste figure in monocromo e tinte a mano rivelano tanto lo sviluppo della fotografia di nudo come genere, quanto le fantasie illecite, i costumi sessuali e i tabù sociali.

1000 Nudes. A History of Erotic Photography from 1839–1939


A Glimpse through the Keyhole of History

From the earliest nude daguerreotypes to experimental nude photography

The history of nude photography is the history of people’s fascination with the topic. Indeed, the photographic depiction of the human body is the only subject that has enthralled photographers, theoreticians, and consumers over such a long period—more than 150 years. No other motif is as prevalent as this one during all the phases of development comprising the history of photography, no other is present, whatever the technique, and is a subject of discussion within the context of nearly all aesthetic movements. Nor has any other pictorial topic produced such a variety 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 desire as it has awakened official wrath.

1000 Nudes offers a cross section of the history of nude photography, ranging from the earliest nude daguerreotypes and ethnographic nude photographs to experimental nude photography. The period of time spanned by this work is from 1839 to roughly 1939, from the medium’s infancy to the end 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 century, 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 late Uwe Scheid’s collection, one of the world’s largest and most important collections of erotic photography.

Un vrai plaisir

Une collection de photos hors du commun réunie dans un bel ouvrage. De magnifique reproduction de photos anciennes dans une belle qualité et le tout encadrant des textes détaillant l'histoire de la photos de nue. L'ouvrage présente également quelques superbes stéréoscopies très anciennes.

More interesting than I thought.

This book is mostly a time travel for me. It is a book full of naked ghosts...

Ein spannender Überblick über die erotische Fotografie vergangener Tage. Diese Bilder sorgen für ein weit komplexeres Urteil über die Menschen der Vergangenheit. Es macht sie greifbarer und auf eine seltsame Art menschlicher.
