Gerhard Riebicke

Gerhard Riebicke's work is some of the best when it comes to nude Germans outdoors in the first half of the 20th Century.  His technical quality and choice of themes and models is still regarded as top level.  Today, I will feature five of his photos.  Disclosure:  I am learning to remove watermarks, and the slight mess in the upper left corner is due entirely to that.  Hopefully, I will improve.



  1. I like the way the male a the dog are in focus, but the background is not. When I was overseas, we used to strive for this effect when taking pictures.

    1. That used to be the way photos turned out by default on most inexpensive cameras.

  2. Jerry, pour les retouches photos, j'utilise PhotoscareX (gratuit) et je vais sur le site Pixlr disponible en anglais ou en français.

  3. I love dogs but I'm not sure that I'd want to play fetch the stick in the nude with a German Shepherd. I'd also give fetch the ball a miss too. It's a good photo, though.
