Ryan McGinley at Galerie Gabriel RoltJuxtapoz // Saturday, 02 Apr 2011
Ryan McGinley can just capture color better than most contemporary photographers. You want to call it earthly colors shot almost as if you are on another planet. Take that beautiful yellow hue above, just a stunning backdrop to the nude subjects. Cinematic is the right word.The new body of work will be on display in Amsterdam starting April 9.
Galerie Gabriel Rolt hosts McGinley's "Somewhere Place," a body of new works that Rolt describes as "perhaps the most cinematic yet. The photos have developed a surreal, action-film quality— people ricocheting through unknown spaces, a couple starting up at an apocalyptic sky, figures falling from trees in wet darkness. They’re dramatic and moody, full of storms and rushing rivers and night skies."
See, cinematic. Good description for this work.
