If you poke around in an old attic or basement, you might find something like this. Erotica goes way, way back. I was recently gifted a set of images that belonged to a family member, long since passed. I wonder if, after nearly 100 years, photographers have gotten much better at this type of thing.
Today’s glamour, boudoir, and pinup shooters use different techniques, are more precise with their tools, and can digitally manipulate their images with ease. But do they tell a better story? Are today’s erotic images more alluring than these?
In any event, the imagery still fascinates people from all walks of life. I found this collection with some great examples.
