Ryan McGinley, chief documenter of youth and the man who single-handedly inspired almost every single Tumblr/Flickr user worldwide, has just released his take on Sigur Rós’s track Varúð. Following a girl in a golden wig skipping through the hot concrete of New York, we are taken on a trippy adventure where time occasionally stands still and the sunset is so intense it’s almost apocalyptic.
In this tender homage to his home city, and location of his first (and historic) show, Ryan reveals a certain the sweetness in the roaring city that can often be overlooked. On the Sigur Rós website Ryan says “This piece is my poem to New York City, I wanted to bring a childhood innocence to the streets, through a character whose own light and wonder effects the world around her. I’m always interested in an atmosphere where dreams and reality mingle on equal terms.”
