We can see a number of Lynes' photos on the wall at left.

  1. Almost as if he's taking a nap...

  2. He's definitely nice and relaxed. I've seen this photograph before and I'm still not quite sure why but it's one of my favourites​ by Lynes.

    1. Can't speak for you, Peter, but a lot of us like this because it was a relatively rare peek into Lynes' domestic life. The vast majority of his photos were done in carefully staged and lighted studios, while this is almost (but not quite) a snapshot.

    2. Yes, the domestic setting gives us an interesting insight into Lynes' home life. The model seems totally relaxed and comfortable both in this setting and being photographed nude ... and I think he's really attractive, which is another reason why I like this so much.
