“Without any doubt, there is nothing which draws the attention of the observer to it so much as the naked human body“
– Kurt Freytag, Journalist And Photographer, 1909
Erotic Photography — has captivated artists, theoreticians and consumers for over 150 years. Prior to 1839, nude renderings were namely produced via drawings, paintings and engravings, all of which lacked the detail and veracity of the photograph. Thus, there was something inherently more illicit about an erotic photograph than a painting of the same subject, for they were considered closer to real life.
