Exploring the Beauty and Sensuality of the Human Form: Erotic Photography
The very first images are only of landscapes or reproductions of objects. It was very difficult to photograph nudes or take portraits given that a posing time of several minutes was required.

While the process became international, France retained its hegemony particularly with regards to erotic photography, which appeared immediately. The first nudes must have been taken as early as 1840.
