A collection of three books and two additional projects by Ryan McGinley:
Flasher Factory, New York (2004); Olympic Swimmers Postcards (2006); Moonmilk. (1st printing, 2010); the world of agnès b. / point d'ironie (2009); Life Adjustment Center (2010) Ryan McGinley. Introduction by Bob Nickas. Flasher Factory, New York, 2004. 64 pp. Small quarto. First edition. Stiff printed wrappers. Numerous color reproductions. Printed by Stinehour.
Very Fine.

McGinley's now out-of-print second book published on the occasion of a solo show at New York's P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center. While he is best known for capturing intimate and everyday images of his extended family of friends (including skateboarders, graffiti artists, and lovers) in and around the Lower East Side, McGinley shot most of these images in natural settings outside of New York City. For the first time, he had set up situations specifically to be photographed, also creating the conditions in which his subjects could lose themselves in the moment- as when a group of young people climb naked into the upper branches of a tree or float underwater at night. In these new pictures, McGinley has embraced nature as a site of freedom, and he searches for and captures a sense of buoyancy and release. Olympic Swimmers Postcards. Photographs by Ryan McGinley. Opening Ceremony, New York, 2006. 16 color postcards (4¼x6 in.) in printed cardboard box. Trace of scuffing to box; otherwise Fine. See More Images Here. Sixteen images from a portfolio depicting U.S. Olympians produced for publication in the New York Times Magazine in August of 2004. The cards are printed on heavy stock and packaged in a simple box of paper-wrapped boards. Moonmilk. Photographs by Ryan McGinley. Essay by Raphael Gygax. Mörel Books, London, 2010. Unpaged. Small quarto. First edition. Stiff wrappers in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Numerous color reproductions.

"Over the past year, Ryan McGinley and his crew explored huge underground caves, venturing into unknown territory and seeking out spectacular natural spaces, -some previously undocumented. The title, Moonmilk, alludes to the crystalline deposits found on the walls of many caves; it was once believed that this substance was formed by light from celestial bodies passing through rock into darkened worlds below. The series, a departure from Ryan’s iconic images of the past, firmly places Ryan as one of the most innovative and influential artists of a generation! Moonmilk has been deemed photobook of the year (2009) by the New York Times Magazine"--the publisher the world of agnès b. / point d'ironie n°49. Photographs by Ryan McGinley. Series editor, Hans-Ulrich Obrist. agnès b, Paris, 2009. 8 pp. Unbound, folded sheets. Color reproductions. Fine, with just a bit of rippling to sheets. "I first met Ryan McGinley in 2002 at a party somewhere in downtown New York, we talked and had a great connection… he showed me photos that he pulled from his pocket. They reminded me a bit of Nan Goldin’s works that I had showed at the Galerie du Jour in the 90’s. But Ryan’s photos were very different in the way he was photographing his friends -outdoors and close to nature, in a very neo-romantic and lyrical way, akin to painting, evoking the difficulties of youth and coming of age." agnès

"Point d’Ironie {the series of which this flier is a part] originated following a discussion between agnès b., Christian Boltanksi and Hans Ulrich Obrist in 1997. Six to eight issues are published every year, each one designed by an artist who makes it his own. Given free of charge, the Point d’Ironie is an atypical periodical, distributed in a scattered way - 100,000 copies are spread around the world, available in museums, galleries, book shops, schools, cinemas, and at agnès b. stores worldwide. Created by French poet Alcanter de Brahm at the end of the 19th century, the Point d'Ironie is a punctuation mark used at the end of sentences to point an ironic passage within a text."

Life Adjustment Center. Photographs by Ryan McGinley. Dashwood Books, 2010. Unpaged. Small quarto. Clothbound. No jacket as issued. 40 color reproductions.
As New

Catalogue accompanying an 2010 exhibition of the same name held at Ratio3 in San Francisco Presents Ryan McGinley's second collection of male and female nudes. "Two themes are presented in this book, firstly, a collection of black-and-white studio nudes, many with wild animals, an extension of the studio series, 'Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere'. The second features one of McGinley's core elements as a photographer, 'capturing his subjects in dreamlike compositions, rich in motion and color, during recent adventures on the road'"--the publisher
