At age 25 Ryan McGinley was one of the youngest photographers to score a solo exhibition at the Whitney and furthermore her was recognized as “Young Photographer of the Year” by the International Center of Photography. Today the 37-year old continues to explore the nude figure within the American landscape and presents his latest body of work in a new book published by Rizzoli, entitled “Way Far.” The dreamy an highly evocative photos were taken during months-long summer road trips cross-country.
““As one of the most critically acclaimed photographers working today and rightfully considered the voice of a generation, no other contemporary artist’s work has permeated pop culture this indelibly.””
The much anticipated new book will be released on October 20, 2015. The text of “Way Far” was written by arts author and editor David Rimanelli.
