— Ryan McGinley’s First Shots

AnOther Magazine have revealed some of New York photographer Ryan McGinley’s earliest shots, showing us “the early incarnations of his unique brand of vibrant, youthful photography.”

“This selection was hidden away in my archives,” said McGinley when speaking to Fran Gavin. “I had to blow the dust off the negatives. These are images that mean more to me now than they did when I first took them … I can now see how my interests, style and subject matter started to develop out of this early documentary work. I was a fly on the wall for the first five years. These photographs make me miss living in an east village flop house and having so many people coming through my apartment to photograph.”
