RYAN MCGINLEY "CAR SERVICE, BROOKLYN" 1999
The photographer of his generation, Ryan McGinley became the youngest artist to ever have a solo show at the Whitney.
His early induction into the highest echelon of contemporary photography was based on works like "Car Service, Brooklyn".
Typical of his strongest images, this moody and intimate photograph confirmed that he is the successor to Nan Goldin and Larry Clark.
Over the past decade, McGinley has captured the optimism, rebellion and hedonism experienced by friends and lovers. His strongest early work situates these scenes in New York City.
In 2007 McGinley was awarded the prestigious Young Photographer Infinity Award by the International Center of Photography.
More recently, McGinley had a solo presentation at Freize that nearly sold out.
However collectors are most interested in his first body of work that appeared at the Whitney – "Car Service, Brooklyn" is a paradigm of his work and his most sought-after period.
