Born in Austria in 1908, "Count" Theodore Zichy (a nephew of Mihaly von Zichy, painter to the court of Czar Alexander II and illustrator of Byron) was a mysterious and eccentric British photographer, film-maker, actor and playboy.
Zichy’s leg and shoe fetish was clearly documented in his scarce 1948 portfolio entitled - 20 Chiaroscuros. His seductive and dramatically lit images are charged with a dark obsessive irony.
