Albert Arthur Allan

"Nothing makes a woman seem more naked than standing au naturelle wearing an antique hairdo. Almost all of California photographer Albert Arthur Allen's women have bobbed coiffures -- short hair marked with art deco swirls. He was a refugee of a wealthy New England family, as well as the victim of a San Francisco motorcycle accident that left him a hunched-over gimp. That said, from 1915 to 1930, Allen compelled hundreds of California girls to drop their knickers and pose naked. He was not shooting dirty pictures. He believed sex appeal was "human appeal." He also believed "the true nude gives a version of beauty, both physical and spiritual -- two great needs of humanity." - From Salon Magazine
