Steve Diet Goedde
Columbia College Chicago, 1987
Steve Diet Goedde (pronounced 'die-it geddy') has been a fine art erotic photographer since 1990. He is known for his subtle approach to photographing alternative fashion in a very ethereal, down-to-earth style. His attention to composition and black and white tonal quality has given him the title of the Ansel Adams of erotic photography. Steve established his photographic style in the early 1990s in Chicago where he photographed the contents of his first book The Beauty of Fetish (Edition Stemmle) which was released in 1998. That same year, Steve relocated to Los Angeles where he continued to define his evolving style. This west coast work was later compiled in his second Edition Stemmle book The Beauty of Fetish: Volume II in 2001. In 2006, Slish Pix released a DVD compilation of his work entitled Living Through Steve Diet Goedde. In 2009, Steve has collaborated with French composer Robert Waechter on a CD entitled GoeddeConcerto (ReadyMade Music) in which the ConcertMaster of the Philharmonic of Nice, France interprets 21 of Steve's photographs into 21 mini-concertos.
