il est indéniable qu’ Edwin Bower Hesser fût très inspiré par Les photographies faites autour d’Isadora Duncan et ses danseurs ( mouvement de la danse grecque)  aux modèles  en plein air, ( plage, parc, bois) nus ou avec de légers voiles. Il existait à cette époque une très forte croyance en les idéaux du mouvement de culture physique, du corps parfait  , de la beauté corporelle, de l hygiène et de la sexualité expressive qui émanait du corps. Isadora Duncan, tout comme Ted Shawn, Annette Kellerman, Margaret Edwards, ou Douglas Fairbanks en étaient les portes paroles, avec cette volonté  de montrer au  public ce à quoi ressemblerait la splendeur de ce qu’ils nommaient le « Temple de Dieu, » le physique humain.Heisser s’accrochant à se mouvement en est devenu ce qu’on pourrait qualifié de  » fanatique », espérant proposer un modèle parfait de la « future race humaine » ( propos quelque peu discutables et emprunt d’un certain eugénisme, ce qui lui fût reproché….). Ceci dit, On ne peut pas lui enlever le fait qu’il a su mettre en scène une harmonie entre formes humaines et formes de la nature.

Jugend Magazine

Jugend Magazine is a weekly cultural magazine from late 19th – early 20th Century Germany. Jugend Magazine’s style became influential in the launching of Art Nouveau movement in Germany and give this movement its German name: Jugendstill ( Youth Style) . The term is still used by contemporary graphic designers to refer to German art nouveau works coming from this period.

It would not be an overstatement to say that in Germany Jugend Magazine’s style shaped Art Nouveau movement, which was expanding all over Europe since mid 1800′s. Most typical of Jugendstil was the typography, hand-lettered fonts that heavily influenced computer and graphic design fonts used today.
