Queerty is better as a member
Number eight is heartbreaking.
#2 has one too many arms and legs, respectively. Fascinating photo.
I love George Platt Lynes, he was a renegade and a pioneer. Good for this gallery for showing his work!
Agreed, George Platt Lynes paved the way for queer photographers. Kudos to Queerty & the exhibition for giving him a shout out.
#11 superb. Not sure why Gloria Swanson is included.
George Platt Lynes’ work is amazingly beautiful. His photography molds light and form exquisitely in 2D. He is famous for his work in fashion and portraiture; he was Avant-garde and courageous for his work in light of the prevailing laws and social climate in the United States during his life. It’s a pity that his life was cut short, and that he destroyed so much of his work before his early death. No matter what his subject, he always created a work of beauty.
I had the distinct pleasure to live with photo #2 shown here (his 1945 self-portrait), and other works of his. He is truly a credit to the talent and creatively of the U.S. It’s a shame that he wasn’t more appreciated in his time.
Thank you Queerty and Mr. Keyes for this exhibit of an enlightening talent and passionate trailblazer.
Love his work.
