Ryan McGinley famously said of his work: “My photographs are a celebration of life, fun and the beautiful. They are a world that doesn’t exist. A fantasy. Freedom is real. There are no rules. The life I wish I was living.” In Ryan McGinley: Whistle for the Wind, the first major monograph from the photographer, you can experience this dream world firsthand. The paper is thick, but the photographs are light and airy—a completely beautiful escape from everyday drudgery.
