."Der Akt" Max Koch & Otto Rieth 1894-95
These large nude studies come from a portfolio of 100 collotypes of Max Koch and Otto Reich's photographs titled "Der Akt" (The Nude). These well-known photographs date from 1894-95, and this rare portfolio of collotypes was most likely produced around the turn of the century. Koch and Reich photographed a series of male and female nudes interacting with architecture. Often they employed mirrors, to triplicate the model, creating an illusion of three figures around a single column.
