The Look of Ryan McGinley

December 10th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Ryan McGinley‘s evolution from downtown documentarian, to creator of slick fashion imagery has been one of the most interesting progressions in recent memory. The worlds of art photography and fashion photography have always had a bit of overlap, but in recent years the lines have blurred, with talented photographers moving between boundaries with ease and creating work that satisfies the tenants of either style. McGinley has always had a knack for capturing his subjects at their most unfiltered, whether that means a candid snap of a skateboarder, a hedonistic nude shot in the upstate wilds, or an elegant portrait of a top model or celebrity. There is always something unguarded and fresh about his images that makes them memorable and sets them apart. The dreamy scenarios and saturated colors that dominate his fashion work, make his pictures among the most compelling contributions to magazines of late. Take a look back through is work and see why we’re wild for the McGinley take on things.
