    #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.

    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.
