George Platt Lynes got his start in commercial photography by taking pictures of some of the luminaries of his time such as authors, artists, designers, architects, and actors. Part one of our triple feature shows a sampling of those, starting with this photo of acclaimed English author E.M. Forster and his lover Bob Buckingham, a married policeman whose wife obligingly looked after both of them. Forster had previously had an affair with Harry Daley, another police officer whom he described as "too indiscrete." Harry was openly gay while a cop from 1925-1950. I would have stuck with Harry. Put Harry's name in the search box at lower right, and you'll see why.
