Ryan McGinley usually needs no introduction: he is known for capturing his young, dirty often half-naked friends having fun and looking a little bit stoned. He was one of the youngest artists to have a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art. He is interested in nature, action and nudity. And while his early project finds all these elements in his everyday life, McGinley’s recent work stages his own fantasies and imagination.
Moonmilk is a beautiful photobook. Published by London-based Mörel Books, it has an elegant design and few element (cover, font, jacket) which make this book very unique.
