RYAN MCGINLEY "ERIC" 2001
"Eric" is one of the most iconic early portraits from Ryan McGinley.
It perfectly captures the intimacy, youthful energy and optimism that defines his images.
This photo appeared on the cover of McGinley's first publication by Index books in 2002.
(The book in itself has become highly sought-after on the secondary market often commanding $1,000 for this slim volume)
"Eric" appeared again in the Rizzoli monograph published in 2012.
McGinley's stature continues to rise - TEAM gallery had a sold out booth of new work at the most recent Frieze.
