Book summary

This volume presents a selection of 200 extraordinary images that reflect the central role played by the genre of the nude in the history of photography and in its experimentation.
Ever since the invention of photography in 1839 the nude has constituted a favorite subject among the practitioners of the medium. Through numerous extraordinary examples this volume documents the historical and stylistic development of the nude from its origins with the first daguerreotypes to the provocative images of contemporary photographers.
