RYAN MCGINLEY "RADIO CITY - THE STROKES" 2002
The photographer of his generation, Ryan McGinley became the youngest artist to ever have a solo show at the Whitney.
His early induction into the highest echelon of contemporary photography was based on works like "Radio City - The Strokes".
McGinley's most striking images capture the energy, ambitions and hedonism of New York City during the early 'naughts.
The Strokes, a NYC-based rock band, had a meteoric rise; one single was released in the U.K. which was followed by an international bidding war by record agencies trying to sign them.
In the fall of 2001 the Strokes released their debut album "Is This It" to critical acclaim. Less than a year after the debut of their album the band was playing at the legendary Radio City Music Hall.
The energy, anticipation and pride in the venue is palpable. This is a classic Rock n'Roll image.
Depictions of music would become an important motif in McGinley's work. He would follow Morrissey on tour and photograph teenagers at music festivals over the course of the decade.
This is an important image from the first significant chapter of the photographer's career.
