The Body Exposed: Views of the Body : 150 Years of the Nude in Photography
by Michael Kohler
Publisher's Description
One of the best histories of nude photography to date, The Body Exposed takes a comprehensive look at the genre beginning with the daguerreotype and ending with the centerfold. Where most books of its kind focus only on a specific time period or style of nude photography, this book embraces nearly every development--from the portrait to the peephole. Fashion, art, stereo-view, advertising, documentary, pornographic, and erotic photography are all investigated and discussed in the engaging text by noted curator Michael Köhler, and illustrated in gorgeous, high-quality reproductions. Highly recommended.
