THE ART OF NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY
American Art Collector - THE ART OF THE NUDE
There is a genre of beautiful art photography that's not often written about. Indeed, we've never before written about it on our blog - not that it was a conscious decision. However, we think this genre is important enough to write it on our blog to offer some tips for those wanting to venture into this area or those who'd like to improve their work. That genre is fine art nude photography. First, we want to clarify that when we refer to nude photography, we mean images that are artistic, creative, and generally tasteful. We realize that a nude image might evoke surprise or discomfort for the viewer.

Now available for the first time in English, this beautiful oversized volume presents over duotone images of sensuous and sublime female nudes by up-and-coming photographer Pascal Baetens.
The nude , as a form of visual art that focuses on the unclothed human figure, is an enduring tradition in Western art. Unclothed figures often also play a part in other types of art, such as history painting , including allegorical and religious art , portraiture , or the decorative arts. From prehistory to the earliest civilizations, nude female figures are generally understood to be symbols of fertility or well-being. Japanese prints are one of the few non-western traditions that can be called nudes, but the activity of communal bathing in Japan is portrayed as just another social activity, without the significance placed upon the lack of clothing that exists in the West. Through each era, the nude has reflected changes in cultural attitudes regarding sexuality, gender roles, and social structure.
