Uwe Ommer: Erotic Ladyland: Half a Century of Photography

Uwe Ommer was born in 1943 in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. He won the German youth prize for photography in 1962 and then moved to Paris in the same year, where he still lives. Here he worked as assistant to Jean Pierre Ronzel, the famous photographer. Since the 1970s, Uwe Ommer has become one of the world’s most sought-after commercial photographers, working for Charles Jourdan (who produced the most expensive shoes of the 70s and 80s). His aesthetic nudes have been published in Esquire, Lui, Photographie, and Zoom. Many books, such as Asian Ladies, Black Ladies, Do It Yourself, and Exotic, as well as the Pirelli Calendar, have made his exotic, erotic photographs especially popular. His volume 1000 Families contained photos by Ommer of families from all over the world, each taken in front of a neutral, white background. In 2002, Uwe Ommer received a lifetime achievement award from the Royal Photographic Society. This large-format book presents not only some of his more famous photos, but also several previously unpublished works, all selected from the rich back catalog of this master of erotic photography.
