Wilhelm Plüschow (also Guglielmo Plüschow; * August 18, 1852 in Wismar;
† January 3, 1930 in Berlin) German photographer.

Plüschow was born in Wismar and grew up in Plüschow Castle.

Around 1870 Wilhelm Plüschow moved to Rome. First he earned his living as a wine merchant, soon he turned to professional nude photography. Later he also worked in Naples.

Plüschow met the photographer Wilhelm von Gloeden. Like him, he used negatives in 18 x 24 cm and 13 x 18 cm formats. Because of their motivity similarity, the photographs of Plüschow and Gloedens can occasionally only be distinguished by the props of the stagings. Plüschow preferred the uncovered, frontal representation. The models, whose bodies often still showed the traces of worn clothing, mostly came from the urban proletariat in Rome and Naples.

In 1910 Plüschow had to leave Italy and returned to Germany, Berlin.

The book was published in a unique edition of 1000 copies. This is copy # 0661.
