George Platt Lynes
: The Daring Eye is a life of the gregarious American portrait, dance, fashion, and male nude photographer whose career spanned the late 1920s to 1955. From age 18, Lynes entered the cosmopolitan world of the American expatriate community in Paris when he became acquainted with the salon of Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. Intending to pursue a literary and small press publishing career, Lynes also began photographing authors like
Stein, Jean Cocteau, Andre Gide, and Colette. Soon, he turned exclusively to photography, establishing himself as one of the premier fashion photographers in the Conde Nast stable, documenting the early ballets of
George Balanchine, and pursuing his private obsession with seductive images of young male nudes almost never published in his time. Lynes’s private life was as glamourous and theatrical as his images with their brilliant studio lighting and dramatic Surrealist set-ups. Barely out his teens, he met the publisher Monroe Wheeler who was already in a relationship with the emerging expatriate novelist Glenway Wescott. The peripatetic threesome maintained a polyamorous connection that lasted some 15
years. Their New York apartment became a mecca for elegant cocktail and name-dropping dinner parties. Their menage-a-trois complicates our understanding of the pre-Stonewall gay “closet.” This
biography, drawing upon intimate letters and an unpublished memoir of Lynes’s life by his brother, writer and editor Russell Lynes, paints a portrait of the emerging influence of gays and lesbians in the visual, literary, and performing arts that defined transatlantic cosmopolitan culture and presaged later gay political activism.
