George Platt Lynes: photographs, 1931-1955

Front Cover
Twelvetrees Press, Dec 1, 1981 - Photography - 129 pages
This highly praised monograph was selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the outstanding photography books of the year. As evidenced by the mythological series included in this first book of his work, Lynes stands as one of the great American Surrealists. His extensive work with portraiture and the ballet are invaluable documents of American cultural life during the thirties and forties. This book also includes perhaps the finest selection of Lynes' work with the nude figure. Although neglected for over three decades, Lynes must now be considered one of the great fashion, dance, and portrait photographers in the history of the medium. Essays by George Balanchine, Lincoln Kirstein, and Glenway Westcott are collected here.
