Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. Second Edition, limited to 2,000 copies. Oversize folio and 80 full-page black and white plates. Contains graphic imagery. Lynes' surviving work, rediscovered 25 years after his death, established him as one of America's preeminent Surrealist-influenced photographers. This monograph reproduces both the fashion, dance, and portrait photography that made him a celebrated figure in 1930s New York as well as his hidden passion - photography of the male nude, usually in interpretation of scenes from Greek mythology.
