Galerie Perrotin is delighted to present Body Loud, an exhibition by Ryan McGinley, comprised of twenty brand new, primarily large-format photographs taken over the course of last summer. This is his first show with the gallery.
Since 2005, McGinley has spent each summer developing his ongoing body of road-trip photographs. He and his crew travel the country to capture non-professional models in a variety of natural settings. The production of these images has evolved greatly since their inception—what began as fly-on-the wall documentation now consists of rigorous and intense production schedules, elaborate safety precautions, and mobile studio lighting. The situations are meticulously staged, although the resultant images are not: McGinley’s practice still allows for and thrives upon spontaneity.
