Ryan McGinley brings the same sense of intimacy and boundless energy to this series of b&w studio nudes of sublime youth that has marked his previous work. No one is working today with quite the same freedom and confidence as McGinley who has evolved into the most important photographer of his generation with a wholely contemporary vision and unwavering energy. Everybody Knows This is Nowhere is his most ambitious book to date, a beautifully produced volume, luxuriously printed in tritone with a folded poster wrap. It accompanies an exhibition at Team Gallery opening March 18th, 2010 and features a conversation between McGinley and Catherine Opie.
