A study of the photographic work of George Platt Lynes. The 80 photographs reproduced in this book were taken from the archive of 600 prints collected by Lyne's friend Alfred Kinsey, founder of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. Lyne, working in the first half of the twentieth-century, took portraits, and fashion and ballet photographs, but he is now best known for his images of the male nude. Many of the images in George Platt Lynes were published here for the first time. From the library of the theatre designer David Collis, with his dated signature in pencil to the front endpaper.
