One of the things that Ryan McGinley is celebrated for is photographing his wide circle of friends. And to put it bluntly, McGinley’s friends – who include artists, musicians, and models – are probably cooler than yours. Captured in various states of undress, cavorting through natural environments, the subjects of the American photographer are sometimes vulnerable, other times alluring – but always compelling. As you gaze on pieces that range from the massive “Yearbook” – made up of hundreds of studio shots mounted on one wall of the Opera City Gallery – to a collection of somber-toned silver gelatin prints, make up your own mind whether you agree with the 2014 GQ article that dubbed McGinley “the most important photographer in America.”
