Dianora Niccolini

Seven black-and-white photographs from the permanent collection by Dianora Niccolini (b. 1936) that celebrate the male form.

Dianora Niccolini was born in Florence, Italy. Her family emigrated to the United States while she was still a child. At 18, she moved to New York City to study art and ballet, and took up photography in 1963. Niccolini is a pioneering photographer who sought to remove the stigma of the male nude and emphasize the artistic beauty of statuesque figures.
