Ryan McGinley's WINTER show opened last week in NYC. I wish I could have gone. The photos and ideas bring back my own fond memories of working with models in Alaska where snow and ice abound from October to April. McGinley's images are always beautiful in composition and light, and these are no exception. The blues and yellows are gorgeous and his snow has many colors, its true state. McGinley's models/friends always have a sense of fun, lightness, dare and freedom in their frolicking. These WINTER photos however, communicate disconnection and pain with and within the environment. They leave me wanting more though, and I hope he will consider an Alaskan winter portfolio one day.
