2009 Large Hardcover. 160 pp. In 1839 Louis Jacques Mande unveiled the daguerreotype upon the world and it became possible to produce erotic images of real women taken in real time. After its first stumbling technical steps, this new medium of photography opened up unforeseen worlds, including the world of glamour and eroticism, to a mass market. Peep Show Pinups celebrates the history of erotic, sexually-charged photographs of women, pioneered in France but spreading through Europe and across to North America, from the 1840s until the 1930s. It offers sketches of the studios, the photographers, the models, and captures the costumes, sets, and props. This book follows the technological evolution in the medium from the fragile daguerreotype to the first printed cabinet cards and the mass market saucy postcards. It explains the experiments that allowed the introduction of color and the illusion of three dimensions and movement into the medium, and the shifting balance between the demands of the market and the strictures of the law. Above all, this book offers delightful photographs of women from past eras and creates a timeline of sensuality and eroticism. The authors acknowledge and delve into the issues of commercial, racial, and sexual exploitation that were present from those earliest days of erotic photography until today, but Peep Show Pinups is also a celebration of sensuality, fun, style, and joie de vivre in what may be regarded as its golden era.
