Ryan McGinley latest show entitled at New York City’s Team Gallery compels viewers to acknowledge the complexity of selfhood. Entitled “Mirror, Mirror,” the seminal photographer lent cameras and film to a diverse swathe of subjects to freely capture themselves nude in front of mirrors. The crowd-sourced undertaking saw numerous participants of ages 19 to 87. McGinley gathered and printed the resulting visuals, aiming to shed a light on how “the camera functions as an increasingly ubiquitous mediator in the presentation of contemporary identity.”
