The 19th C. Germans, Part 1 - the Photos of Wilhelm von Pluschow

Wilhelm von Pluschow (1852-1930) was a German photographer who moved to Italy about 1880, changed his first name to Guglielmo, and started photographing nude young men.  He was eventually joined in his pursuit of both photography and young men by his cousin, Wilhelm von Gloeden.  Von Gloeden is better known today, but von Pluschow's work is worth a series.  We start with one of his older models who seems to be stretching in an ornate doorway.
