New york times cover 
he New York imes and Art inAmericaeam is pleased to present anexhibition o new work by theNew York-based photographerRyan McGinley. Entitled I KnowWhere the Summer Goes, theexhibition will run rom the 3rdo April through the 3rd o May 2008. eam Gallery is located at 83Grand Street, cross streets Woost-er and Greene, on the groundoor.Ryan McGinley’s “snapshots” havebeen evolving steadily since hisguerilla show at 420 West Broad-way in 2000. In the interveningeight years he has moved away rom an artistic practice that wasthe soul o casual and towardsan elaborated production sched-ule that raises the ante on “beingthere.” McGinley has gone rombeing perceived as the hottestyoung photographer in town toSebastian, is more than just a pieceo poetic musing. McGinley does,in act, know where his summersgo. In the summer o 2007, orexample, he traversed the UnitedStates with sixteen models andthree assistants, shooting 4,000rolls o lm. From the resultingbeing considered a serious artistwith a rare gi or creating en-during color photographs — pho-tographs that show us the best o youth.Te title o this exhibition, takenrom an early B-side by Belle &150,000 photographs, he ardu-ously narrowed down the body o work to some y images, the besto which are on display here at thegallery.Te inspirational images or theproject were culled rom the kindso amateur photography that ap-peared in nudist magazines duringthe 60s and early 70s. McGinley would sit with his models andlook through all o the ephemerao the period that he had collected,discussing with them the moodthat he was hoping to capture thatday.McGinley had chosen a very specic itinerary that would bringhis troop through the incrediblerange o landscapes that are avail-able across the US and careully planned a battery o activities,sometimes orchestrating the use o special efects. He has always beenquite ond o reworks and ogmachines and in this new work they play a major role.Te very articial constructednesso the project allows or situationsin which the models can bothperorm and be caught of guard.Te resultant pictures o nudeyoung men and women playingand living in the great outdoorsare innocent yet erotic, casual yetcalculated.
