Photo Gallery: Ryan McGinley's Nudes

Ryan McGinley shifts gears from his last solo outing in London, where he exhibited spectacular color photographs of naked youths in underground caves across America, to an equally compelling new series of black-and-white photographs of bold young souls, shot nude in his studio. Capturing every move his diverse mix of models made on stark, seamless paper, McGinley chose the best shot from thousands of poses to represent each expressive sitter.

Stripped bare of their clothing, India, Cody, Jerilyn, Eduardo, Mari, and dozen of other posers put their fresh faces forward, and the resulting photographs, which are on view in the exhibition Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere at New York’s Team Gallery through April 17, do not disappoint.
