Down to explore the titillating past? Join us on a scintillating journey through 100 years of erotic photography. Time to unveil the hidden sensuality!

1000 Nudes offers a cross sectional history of nude photography, ranging from the earliest nude daguerreotypes and ethnographic nude photographs to experimental nude photography. The period of time spanning this work is from 1839 to roughly 1939, from the medium’s infancy to the end of the classic modernist period,

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.
