Ryan McGinley’s Magical Exploding Taint

11.02.10 Marina Galperina

Ryan McGinley’s new photo series is chockfull of pretty artifice, tits with sparklers, butts with fowl and sun-streaked naked people, spontaneously tossed taint-first over ethereal landscapes. Life Adjustment Center at San Francisco’s Ratio3 Gallery is 1/2 monochrome emotional bestiality and 1/2 “exuberance, optimism, and power of youth” in color. It kind of makes you want to take a road trip with lots of bored, naked, fire-repellent friends. Photos above. Ryan McGinley: Life Adjustment Center,
