Quote of Note | Ryan McGinley

Ryan McGinley 2007
A 2007 work by Ryan McGinley.

“I love shooting at sand dunes because people can be at their most playful there, and everything that I was someone to do in a photo that you can do safely and really freely in sand dunes. I like them because of the spatial relationship—you can tell how big the people are and how big the dunes are. I also like them because it’s like blocks of color—ranging from really tan to really white. It’s in your DNA to act extremely childish and be really playful in that environment. You want to roll down them, you want to run around with your hands like you’re an airplane, you want to play tag, and just be free. You want to take your shoes off and feel the sand in your toes. That type of experience is sort of the essence of what I’m trying to capture in all of my photographs.”

-Artist Ryan McGinley in an interview in The Travel Almanac. “Yearbook,” an exhibition of McGinley’s work, is on view through October 12 at Team Gallery in New York.
