Über diesen Titel:
This volume spotlights the genre of nude photography, presenting for the first time 220 original pictures on the theme from the photography collection of the Munich City Museum, spanning the years from 1845 to 2005.
In the course of six chapters, Nude Visions recounts a cultural history of nude photography. Masters from the respective periods are brought together here?starting with photographs from the early nineteenth century inspired by sculpted and painted images. This period is followed by the symbolist art of the fin de siècle, in which the nude becomes a mirror of psychic moods. Naturist images come next, segueing into the heroic physical ideal of National Socialism, the dream of the femme fatale, or the Orient as a motif for displaying nakedness. Finally, we are treated to the abstract and surrealist experiments of the twentieth century, accompanied by diverse scenarios in which the undressed body is shown in fashion and lifestyle photography. The male nude is also explored as an expression of homoerotic emancipation in imagery.
