Friday Hot Guy Blogging: George Platt Lynes


Thought I'd switch it up this week and focus on one of my favorite photographers, George Platt Lynes (1907 - 1955), who was an integral part of New York's artistic circle of the 1930's and 40's, counting among his friends Gertrude Stein, Paul Cadmus, Martha Graham, Tennessee Williams, E.M. Forster, Lincoln Kirstein, and many others. A photographer of fashion, ballet and mythology, he used Hollywood lighting techniques to develop a signature style decades before Mapplethorpe. Circulated privately among friends, and never signed out of fear of retribution, it is only in the past 25 years that Lynes’ male nudes have been given their due respect in the art world. (This adapted intro and more photos can be found at Wessel and O'Connor.)
