George Platt Lynes: Photographs from the Kinsey Institute
by George Platt Lynes
Publisher's Description
"In the 1930s and 1940s, George Platt Lynes was a fashion photographer highly regarded for his elegant and luminous images. Yet his soul was in his fine art photography, and, in particular, the resonant figure studies of male nudes, which were considered too sensational for public exhibition at that time. From a late twentieth century vantage point, these images can be seen to anticipate the work of numerous contemporary photographers, from Robert Mapplethorpe to Bruce Weber. This book reproduces eighty of Lynes' most striking images, representing all the genres he worked in -- portraits, fashion, dance, and nudes. All are drawn from an archive of 600 prints, most never before published."--the publisher.
