Ryan McGinley, Bearer of Light

Ryan McGinley is an american photographer living in New York who depicts the pleasure-seeking ways of the contemporary youth culture.

Although the photos have a background of violence and drugs, they have a lightness, a freedom and a velocity in the movements of the subjects.

Since his childhood he was interested in the marginal elements of society and used to hang out with musicians, artists and skateboarders.
