Ryan McGinley lives and works in New York.

New Jersey native Ryan McGinley began documenting his friends and Lower East Side subculture in New York City when he was a teenager. The fine art community took notice of his work when he printed a fifty-page, inkjet book entitled The Kids Are Alright in 1999. His large-format color photographs soon graced the walls of the Whitney Museum of American Art, where he was the youngest person ever, at the age of 25, to be given a solo exhibition.

McGinley’s work has since appeared in prestigious publications such as the New York Times Magazine, Vogue and W, allowing him to broaden his subject-matter to include Olympic athletes, artists, actors and other visionaries, not to mention super models. A subsequent exhibition at P.S.1/MoMA established him as one of America’s preeminent young photographers. His newest photographs, shot in both natural and studio settings focus on subjects interacting spontaneously in joyous rebellion, and are a testament to his ever-evolving aesthetic and maturity as an artist. His artwork is represented by Team Gallery, New York, Ratio 3 Gallery, San Francisco and Galerie Perrotin, Paris.
