A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

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 Booklist:

Lynes paid his bills with fashion and portrait photography but is best known today for the work he cared most about--his homoerotic male nudes, which were little known in the 1940s and 1950s when he did them. It's hard to imagine Robert Mapplethorpe's or Bruce Weber's similar work, for example, had it not been for Lynes' precedent. Toward the rather sad end of his life in 1955, a patron came to Lynes--sex researcher Alfred Kinsey, who was eager to collect erotic photography and very interested in Lynes' pictures. Eighty images from the Kinsey Institute collection appear here, some of them male nudes but also portraits and fashion and dance work. Lynes knew how to make a beautiful photograph (his dramatic lighting techniques are breathtaking), and he had a deep sensitivity to human beauty. This well-chosen selection, both gorgeous and explicit (although never as outrageous as Mapplethorpe at his most notorious), includes only two of the photographs in George Platt Lynes Photographs 1931-1955 (1982). Essays by Kinsey curator Crump on Lynes' place in the art world and on homoerotic culture provide needed context. Gretchen Garner
