#5 George Platt Lynes, Orpheus (1950)
by Allison H.
“Lynes focused on Ballanchine’s neo-classicism, while emphasizing the production’s homoeroticism by photographing the ballet dancers nude.”
The exploding strength of male body and the tension of muscles are always undeniably poetic. Human body in photography is just like poetry, each body is written in their own way. The form and shape, skin and hair, every little details are embedded in this vessel, and when all these elements are triggered by the light of any kind, an unique poem comes to existence. But it never ends, as we move, as we change.
