Presents, at long last, Ryan McGinley's first, full-fledged, and much-awaited retrospective collection. "The artist has selected the best photographs from his first decade of work. Ryan McGinley makes large-scale color photographs of his friends, a group that forms part of New York's Lower East Side youth culture. He uses photography to break down barriers between public and private spheres of activity. His subjects are willing collaborators: Drawn from skateboard, music, and graffiti subcultures, they perform for the camera and expose themselves with a frank self-awareness that is distinctly contemporary. The results form a portrait of a generation that is savvy about visual culture and acutely aware of how identity can be communicated through photography. McGinley's newest work signals a departure from the urban youth culture images for which he is best-known; he has been working in natural settings outside New York City, creating specific situations for his subjects to lose themselves in the moment. McGinley embraces nature as a site of freedom and captures a sense of buoyancy and release" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Ryan McGinley collectors. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of relatively few copies of the Limited Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 90 color plates. Winner of the "Photographer of the Year" Infinity Award in 2007. One of the most brilliant living American photographers. A flawless copy.
