Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. Second Edition, limited to 2,000 copies. Oversized 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.

About David Duncan

Sometime in the early ’50s, Hilary Knight’s drawings of naughty little girls for Mademoiselle magazine led to a meeting with author Kay Thompson (then a top nightclub performer)--and, of course, to the perpetually adored Eloise, the precocious Plaza dweller who in many ways is Knight’s alter ego. “Eloise will be celebrating her 60th birthday in 2015--not bad for a six-year-old,” says Knight. We’re honored to offer these personal pieces from Knight, who remains as stylish, outspoken, and original as the legendary little girl he brought to life.
