Ryan McGinley : Spring and By Summer Fall


I recently saw the new Ryan McGinley show at Ratio 3 in SF. Pretty amazing work. He has to be on the short list for best photographers of his generation. The bigger pieces really stand out ( isn't that always the case) Though I'm not sure I would want to live with one of these pieces on my home...one of his friends, naked, on a field trip, jumping around. Almost sold out show too, but don't ask for any pricing info...gallery is snobby.

There's a nice interview with Ryan McGinley and Chris Perez which explains the process.

The people in the photos are actually paid models who travel with Ryan during the summer.

He's going to do this for 5 summers, to get a total of 365 days shooting the american landscape. He just wrapped up year 3.
