Ryan McGinley finds new vices.
This months issue of Vice is called the Travel Issue, and for that reason it has three pages of photos of swim suits. They are done by a variety of photographers, but they all look like McGinley.
The casual nudity, the groups of young people at play, the odd cropping, and delibrate colour sense all scream Ryan, but there is onyl one photo by him here. Is this there way of saying, we dont need you anymore, we have a whole army of clones that can replace you ?
That and the more expcilit hatred of the poor, and the “ironic” use of fag seeming less and less ironic, i think that Vice has lived out its days. McGinley has a whitney show and is finding himself in Purple and Italian Vogue–he doesn’t need them anymore anyways.
