About the book:

With exceptional images by extraordinary talents - plus a universally appealing subject - Nudes is destined to become a classic. It's the oldest story: Man Loves Woman, and such is his love that he expresses his feelings by creating art. Art historians claim the first nudes appeared 20,000 years ago, and not much has changed since. The sculptors of Ancient Greece and Rome idealized nudes. When the medium of photography appeared around 1840, a new kind of realism was inspiring artists and photographers to portray the nude in contemporary settings. Dedicated to one of photography's most challenging subjects, this elegant collection showcases a diverse range of styles in nude photography. Some of the world's most respected photographers are represented, including Herb Ritts, Sheila Metzner, Francois Gillet, Horst, Toshyuki Ohashi and Barbara Bordnick. Sean Callahan, editor of the German magazine Photographie from 1988 to 1991 set the scene for these magnificent images through their fascinating introductions and mesmerizing historical accounts. Packed with gorgeous full-color reproductions and printed on premium paper, Nudes is now available for the first time in affordable paperback. This exclusive collection is a beautiful reference for every photographer's and art lover's library.
