For the first time since 2007, Ryan McGinley will be exporting his provocative photography to The Netherlands. Opening Saturday, April 9th at Galerie Gabriel Rolt, Somewhere Place will see the New York artist continue his musings on love, lust, youth, mortality, all conveyed through the cinematic styling he has come to perfect. Piggybacking on the portraiture first introduced with his Team Gallery solo, Everybody Knows This is Nowhere (covered), and further developed with the inclusion of wild animals during his Life Adjustment Center (covered) show last fall, McGinley will keep shooting in his controlled studio environment with this body of work, yet delivered in full color as opposed to the monochromatic shots of shows past. A new series of his signature staged “happenings” captured outdoors in the wild, brilliantly depicting the raw, ethereal beauty of both his subjects and the land, will round out the collection.
Check out an extensive preview after the jump.
