World War II vet Robert X. "Buddy" McCarthy posed for Lynes in 1952 for a few solo shots
and a memorable series with African-American model John Leapheart. Buddy had a brief affair
with Lynes, and we have no doubt about this model's sexuality. In this photo we can tell that he
knows exactly why we are looking at him. Mr. McCarthy lived to the ripe old age of 91
and is buried along with his long-term lover Ned Kell.
