Ryan McGinley: Photographs

  • Posted by Peter Glatzer on July 11, 2011 in Photography
  • Scrolling Booooooom recently, it dawned on us that we've never posted any Ryan McGinley photos on here. There's no excuse for that, so here you are, a few naked-people-in-nature shots from his portfolio. Not much you can say about McGinley that hasn't already been said, but The Fox Is Black found a nice little excerpt from a controversial 2007 NY Mag article on the downtown NYC art scene about why people care about McGinley's work:

    “People fall in love with McGinley’s work because it tells a story about liberation and hedonism: Where Goldin and Larry Clark were saying something painful and anxiety producing about Kids and what happens when they take drugs and have sex in an ungoverned urban underworld, McGinley started out announcing that “The Kids Are Alright,” fantastic, really, and suggested that a gleeful, unfettered subculture was just around the corner—’still’—if only you knew where to look.”
