Today's the Last Day to See Ryan McGinley's Photographs of Naked People Frolicking in Fields

The exhibition is called Spring and by Summer Fall, and it’s been up for a while at Ratio 3 on Stevenson. From the press release:

Ryan McGinley will present new color photographs that chronicle the summer road trips he has taken across the United States in the past three years. Inspired by images from nudist magazines from the 1960s and early 1970s, McGinley places his naked subjects in unusual and breathtaking situations. McGinley uses the vast and varied landscape of the U.S. as his backdrop, from arid deserts to lush green fields. An energetic feeling of idyllic freedom and youthful innocence suffuses the work. Floating bodies suggest an infinite weightlessness while other figures slip into smoke and constellations of fireworks. McGinley’s work offers an intimate glimpse into a playful constructed world of sensuality, adventure, and the sublime.

    Interesting the amount of sky in the photo – it seams to set up a dynamic with the figure.
