Skeleton #Tattoo Photographed by....
Dianora Niccolini (born October 1936, Florence, Italy) is a fine art photographer who is widely considered to be one of the female pioneers in the photography of the male nude. She was President of Professional Women Photographers (PWP) from 1979 until 1984.
Although Niccolini's specialty was in photographing the male nude, this was a style relegated to homosexual circles and was considered taboo at the time. In 1975, however, the Third Eye Gallery in New York City gave Niccolini a solo exhibition. The exhibition was titled The Male Nude. This was the first gallery exhibit of male nudes by anyone, and is thought to have legitimized and de-stigmatized the male nude in the art community.
