Count Theodore Zichy was a British photographer, born in Austria on (June 13 1908 - 1983) who commonly photographed women’s legs and feet. His 1948 portfolio “Chiaroscuros” played off of the erotic sexual fantasies of modern man, featuring photographs of women’s legs and chains. He has been described as a mysterious and eccentric photographer, film-maker, actor and playboy.

Count Theodore Zichy held dual Hungarian and British citizenship, was born at Eastbourne. He wasa nephew of Mihály Zichy. His father was an Hungarian aristocrat.

Zichy’s leg and shoe fetish was clearly documented in his scarce 1948 portfolio entitled Chiaroscuros. His seductive and dramatically lit images are charged with a dark obsessive irony.
