Alfons Walde (1891–1958) is known around the world for his paintings of snowy landscapes and winter sports scenes, highly popular and sought after works that helped shape Tyrol, and especially Kitzbühel, into a fashionable mecca for alpine sports enthusiasts. Little known, on the other hand, is Walde’s passion for photography, which he discovered prior to WWI and which accompanied him throughout his life. This book provides the first ever insight into the artist’s photographic archive, featuring images that focus on the female nude. By juxtaposing selected photographs with the artist’s drawings and paintings, the book shows how Walde used his Leica and color film as a photographic sketchbook for his painted works. Above all, however, it is about the pleasure of looking – for not only are the photographs preliminary artistic studies, they are also erotic foreplay.

This publication has been released at the occasion of the exhibtion SchauLust. The Erotic Photography of Alfons Walde, curated by Rebekka Reuter and Peter Weiermair.
