Today is World Photo Day, something that a blog that celebrates the work of many photographers cannot ignore. Of course all the photographs we celebrate are of naked women but then as soon as photography was invented people (well, Frenchman) started to capture naked women for posterity, thank goodness.
Hand coloured stereographic nudes. French C. 1849
Given the millions (probably billions) of images of naked women in existence (we have over 150,000 in our computer alone) it would be impossible to choose one image, so, instead, we have chosen a self portrait of a photographer whose work we particularly admire.
Denver based photographer Nicholas DeSciose did a lot of work for Oui and Playboy in the seventies and we featured one of his Lui centrefold pictorials a few years ago. As a result, Mr DeSciose got in contact with Triple P and sent us this self portrait which we really like. We hope he doesn't mind us posting it as a tribute to every photographer in history who has taken photographs of naked ladies!
