Baron Wilhelm von Gloeden - eccentric photographer living in Taormina

Baron Wilhelm von Gloeden (1856 – 1931) was a groundbreaking, eccentric photographer who lived in Taormina. While today von Gloeden is mainly known for his nudes (especially young males photographed with a homoerotic flavour), in his lifetime he was also famous for his landscape photography that helped popularize tourism to Italy.
