Ryan McGinley’s Caves

BloodFalls_30x40in

Each summer, for 4 summers now, 3 months at a time, Ryan McGinley and friends have traveled across the United States shooting photographs of their journeys.  For this series, Moonmilk, the crew find themselves in caves, some of which have never been touched, stepped inside, or documented before. McGinley’s style evolved from documenting his friends in real-life situations towards creating settings where the situations he envisions can be documented, and this series the real focus are the dramatic caves and tiny bodies that almost become one with the surroundings. McGinley is youngest artist to ever receive a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
