Synopsis: 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 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 daguerrotypes 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.   About the Series:

Book Description Taschen Deutschland Gmbh+ Okt 2014, 2014. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 207x154x49 mm. Neuware - Ein Blick durch das Schlüsselloch der Geschichte Von den frühesten Daguerreotypie-Nackten bis zum experimentellen Akt Die Geschichte der Aktfotografie ist immer auch die Geschichte der Faszination, die sie auf uns ausübt. Tatsächlich handelt es sich bei der fotografischen Abbildung des unbekleideten menschlichen Körpers um das einzige Sujet, das Fotografen, Theoretiker und Konsumenten seit über 150 Jahre gleichermaßen beschäftigt. Kein anderes Motiv war in allen Phasen der Fotografiegeschichte unabhängig von der jeweiligen Technik so verbreitet, kein anderes Thema so fester Bestandteil fast aller ästhetischer Bewegungen. Kein anderes Bildmotiv hat so unterschiedliche Ausrichtungen erlebt wie der Akt: von ethnologischen Aufnahmen bis zum Glamourshot, von Nudistenfotografie bis zum zeitgenössischen Pin-Up. Und kein anderer fotografischer Bereich hat ein solches Ausmaß an Begierde geweckt und gleichzeitig so viel offizielle Empörung erzeugt. 1000 Nudes präsentiert einen Querschnitt der Geschichte der Aktfotografie, von den frühesten Daguerreotypien und ethnografischen Aufnahmen bis hin zum experimentellen Akt. Die behandelte Zeitspanne erstreckt sich von 1839 bis etwa 1939, von den Anfängen des Mediums bis zum Ende der klassisch-modernistischen Periode. Dabei wird das ganze Spektrum an Ansätzen berücksichtigt: von manuell bearbeiteten Akten mit hohem künstlerischen Anspruch aus der Zeit um die Jahrhundertwende bis hin zu 'obszönen' Postkartenmotiven, die lediglich dazu dienten, dem Käufer so viel Geld wie möglich aus der Tasche zu ziehen. Alle gezeigten Bilder stammen aus der Sammlung Uwe Scheid, einer der weltweit größten und wichtigsten Sammlungen erotischer Fotografie. 576 pp. Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783836554466
