SAN FRANCISCO -  BMF Speaker Series to host lecture on 1940s photographer icon George Platt Lynes in “Of Hepburn and Hunks: The Life and Times of George Platt Lynes

As a photographer, George Platt Lynes didn't just capture Hollywood and the fashion world in his work. His work photographing nude men was a constant source of both pride and anxiety for the mid-century artist. 

Learn more about Lynes, as well as how his male nudes ended up in the archives of The Kinsey Institute, in the upcoming presentation "Of Hepburn and Hunks: The Life and Times of George Platt Lynes."
