A brilliant production by Ryan McGinley: Oversize format. Photographs by Ryan McGinley. There is no text. Printed on pristine-white, uncoated stock paper in Paris, France to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "Ryan McGinley". An overview of some of his most celebrated and representative photographs. The descendant of Larry Clark, Jack Pierson, and Wolfgang Tillmans, Ryan McGinley is now firmly established as a Zeitgeist photographer. "His diaristic approach comes out of his immersion in the East Village gay scene, hip-hop music and musicians, graffiti taggers, partying, night clubs, art openings, and studios. He seems a part of the scene he is photographing, accepted as a photographer recording the life he is a part of. He thinks of his pictures as an illustration of his fantasy life, fantasy in the sense that many of the things happened because he had an idea for a photograph" (Publisher's blurb). McGinley's subjects are restless, always doing something, almost always au naturel. McGinley's fantasy is that we do the "fun" things in life unencumbered by clothing if not completely naked. His best images are what no less than The New York Times Magazine has called "photography as poetry in motion". Sexy, cool, and hip, his images are beautifully shot and impeccably composed. His work is in the Permanent Collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Saatchi Gallery London, and the International Center of Photography (ICP). An absolue "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Ryan McGinley collectors. This Souvenir Tabloid is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker in front by Ryan McGinley. It is signed on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. He encircled his signature with a graphic "talk" balloon. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Tabloid Souvenir available online, is in protective plastic wrappers, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The Tabloid is flat, NOT folded, as most copies that have turned up online are. McGinley is notoriously averse to public signings. Copies occasionally available online, not signed, command hundreds of dollars. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the "Photographer of the Year" Infinity Award in 2007. One of the most brilliant living American photographers. A fine collectible copy.
