    Ryan McGinley: Body Loud

Photography: Ryan McGinley's youthful nudes in new show Body Loud (some NSFW)

Posted by Liv Siddall,

What we’d give to sip on the youth elixir that Ryan McGinley quite clearly has an infinite supply of in his bag. You can imagine him in a van packed with fun youths, chatting excitedly and joking around, on their way to a meadow to spend a few days camping and photographing, somersaulting out of barns and running naked through tall grass. The words ‘one trick pony’ have been bandied about surrounding McGinley’s work of late, but I think this is merely overlooking the fact that he’s found his niche and he’s sticking to it. Who else can capture frivolity, raw beauty and the natural electricity that runs through life with the same celebratory joy as Ryan? No one, I don’t think.

You can see Body Loud Ryan’s new collection of photographs at Galerie Perrotin in Paris until 11 January 2014
