Alison Jacques Gallery recently announced the first UK solo show of acclaimed American artist Ryan McGinley with an exhibition of 24 new color photographs shot in caves across North America. Over the last year, McGinley and his crew explored these subterranean domains, venturing into unknown territory, seeking out spectacular natural spaces, some previously undocumented. The title of the show, “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. A book of McGinley’s new photographs will be published by Morel books to coincide with the opening of the London show which took place last night. “Moonmilk” will remain open until October 8th, 2009
Those of you who can’t make it to London can check out the online gallery at Tiny Vices.
