"Dashwood Book’s second Ryan McGinley publication “Life Adjustment Center” coincides with an exhibition opening October 29, 2010 at Ratio3 in San Francisco. Two themes are presented in this book — first, a collection of b&w 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 book is bound in a blue cloth with red text on cover and spine and a red stain to the page edges."--the publisher
