In the art world, while a lot of galleries go on break and artists travel to their favorite relaxation destinations, summertime is McGinley time. Although the young photographer has put his signature summer road trip sessions into retirement, his film career is progressing nicely. Following on the heals of his Pringle of Scotland video featuring Tilda Swinton, comes Entrance Romance, featuring model Carolyn Murphy.
Although it may be disappointing for those familiar with McGinley’s work that Murphy does not appear naked in the film, there is violence, bottle smashing, large flames, and passionate mild softcore bestiality. The camera focuses on the most minute changes in action and expression and is unlike anything you would expect from the artist.
