RYAN MCGINLEY "EMILY & HANNAH" 2002
In 2003 Ryan McGinley (b. 1977) became the youngest artist to ever have a solo show at the Whitney.
Over the past decade, McGinley has become the photographer of his generation.
Through several distinct but thematically linked bodies of work, he has proven himself to be the successor of Nan Goldin and Larry Clark.
McGinley's work captures the optimism, rebellion and hedonism experienced by friends and lovers in New York City, unlike the violence or destitution documented by his antecedents.
"Emily & Hannah" is an important and familiar image in McGinley's oeuvre: It has appeared in all of the McGinley publications, including the recent Rizzoli monograph and well as being included in his Whitney exhibition.
"Hannah" herself is in several of McGinley's images, typically obscured, her identity shielded.
Whether she is a muse or close friend remains unknown, but her significance McGinley's work in undeniable.
This image hosts many of the themes that reappear in McGinley's work; nature as a playground for sexuality and mischief, androgyny and the ambiguous boundaries between friends and lovers.
