Sinopsis: George Platt Lynes was a highly-regarded pre-war fashion photographer whose studies of male nudes were deemed too erotic for public exhibition at that time. Lynes was a pioneer in this genre, and his style influenced many recent photographers, including Mapplethorpe and Weber. Emphasizing those which have been least published, this book reproduces 80 of his most striking images, half of them nudes - male and female - and all drawn from an archive of 600 prints collected by Alfred Kinsey, founder of the Kinsey Institute. James Crump has contributed two essays, one about Lynes's role in the avant-garde and the other concerning the male erotic sub-culture of which his private world was a part.

From Library Journal: Lynes gained some fame in the Thirties as a surrealist-associated fashion and dance photograher and for a short time was chief photographer of the Vogue studios. He also produced a large number of nudes. Alfred Kinsey's purchases of hundreds of these negatives and prints supplied a large portion of Lynes's income in the early Fifties, when his commercial assignments dropped off and no market for male nudes existed. In two essays, Crump, curator of the Kinsey archives, does a fine job describing Lynes's professional and personal life and reevaluating the historical significance of Lynes's nudes, rightly claiming "Mapplethorpe's vision owes a great deal more to Lynes than heretofore recognized." Unfortunately, close to half the 80 beautiful, full-page reproductions are of his less-important commercial work, and the majority of nudes are in the more sanitized "sculptural" style, leaving the reader wanting more material to evaluate Lynes's relation to today's homoerotic photographers. Recommended for large, modern-photography collections. --Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"
