RYAN MCGINLEY "OLYMPIC SWIMMERS BOX" 2004
In 2004 the New York Times commissioned Ryan McGinley to shoot swimmers on the US Olympic team as they prepared for the summer games in Athens.
This was one of McGinley's earliest commissions for the Times.
Over the course of the past decade McGinley has shot for the newspaper and their affiliated magazines on a regular basis.
This portfolio of images was not released nor exhibited but the artist did create a multiple - 16 cards in a box in a limited edition.
The set has been sold out for several years and examples are highly sought-after on the secondary market.
The images epitomize both McGinley's aesthetic and interest in the optimism and exuberance of youth.
Caviar20 has sold several examples of McGinley's photographs and we are pleased to offer this affordable multiple; ideal for a young collector.

- Where does the inventory ship from?
Our inventory is divided between New York and Toronto.
- Where do you ship to?
We can ship anywhere. Typically when we ship within North America we prefer to use FedEx Ground. To Europe, Asia and beyond we generally use DHL. Occasionally we use CanadaPost, but will notify the client if this is the best option.
- How much does it cost to ship?
For shipments within North America, we typically charge a flat rate fee. Many items on our site will list the rate. For shipping outside of North America, we can easily provide a quote and will look for the most efficient and economical option.
Most of the items on our site can be easily shipped internationally.
Occasionally we will recommend that an artwork be removed from its frame for shipping. Larger framed works are typically framed with plexiglass. We export over 80% of what we sell, so we are comfortable shipping anywhere.
- Are there additional taxes or fees?
When a work is valued above $2,500 usd there is a possibility of tax of 0.35%, but this is applied sporadically. There can similarly be an additional fee for customs brokerage and this can range from $20 - $65. US Taxes, duties and customs brokerage are not included in our flat rate shipping. However most of our shipments to the US enter without any additional fees.
- Do you provide a certificate of authenticity?
Yes, we guarantee everything we sell. We can provide both a digital and printed version of our certificate of authenticity.
