The Photography of Ryan Mcginley

Ryan Mcginley's work is lighthearted and care-free. He works almost exclusively with nudes- lending his photographs a timeless quality (although the coloration speaks strongly of the early 70's). Somehow he manages to capture a beauty and innocence that is at once nostalgic and sweet.

I love his work- the colors the tone, the portraits, the way he captures the interior world of a person. Magical.

Perhaps he is some kind of Robert Mapplethorpe/ Andrew Wyeth/ Maxfield Parrish combo?
