On this night, Andrew also took his time to sign and draw for […]
Like his previous photography work with Sienna Miller for Vogue and video for Pringle of Scotland, Ryan McGinley has already had several fashion projects under his belt. His latest shoot for the The New York Times is no different as he was enlisted to take photos of model Karlie Kloss for part of their travel series for T Magazine with this particular session set in Nicaragua. McGinley’s aesthetic seems to be a perfect fit for collaborations such as these so expect to see more in the future. Read more about the shoot here. […]
