  • Vincenzo Galdi (Naples 1871 - Rome 1961) was an Italian photographer of the male and (mostly) female nude. He started as model and lover, then assistant to Wilhelm von Plüschow (therefore attributional problems arise when different copies of the same image bear sometimes Plüschow's sometimes Galdi's signature or stamp), then he ran a studio of his own in Roma between 1900 circa and 1907. After the police closed down both his studio and Pluschow's one in 1907, he started an art gallery, Galleria Galdi, in via del Babbuino in Rome, which he ran until his death. His pictures are still often mistaken for those by Wilhelm von Gloeden, in order to get higher prices in the antiquarian market, but they have a rather distinct character of their own (definitely much more sexual), that can be easily spotted.
