Jacques Biederer (1887-1942)

At first Czech S&M photographer Jacques Biederer signed his erotic photographs. When he began specializing in more risque subjects, he marked some with his initials J.B. or just "B" beneath an accent mark, and then stopped signing them altogether. Scores of unmarked images have been identified by the repeated use of the same models, costumes, props, furnishings and set decorations.During World War II, the harsh conditions under German occupation put an end to the erotica industry in France from 1940 to 1944. As the Biederer brothers were of Jewish descent, they were seized by the Nazis and deported to the concentration camp at Auschwitz where they perished.
