RYAN MCGINLEY "NIGHT PLAY" 2003

The photographer of his generation: Ryan McGinley (b. 1977) was the youngest artist to ever have a solo show at the Whitney.

Over the past decade, McGinley has proven himself to be the successor to both Nan Goldin and Larry Clark.

Unlike his predecessors McGinley's work captured the optimism, rebellion and hedonism experienced by friends and lovers in New York City. Artists such as the late Dash Snow and Dan Colen regularly make appearances in his images.

McGinley's images are celebratory, sexy and unapologetic. This is a classic example of his practice: uninhibited youth at play. While there are several known images of nocturnal skinny dipping (take a look at "Tim and Dakota" or "Gilles and Oliver" ) this work is notable for its double-frame. 

Most of McGinley's photographs from this period were published in a 40" x 30" format. This is a rare work that was released in a smaller, and more affordable, format.
