Ryan McGinley Explores Contemporary Identity in "Mirror, Mirror"Providing cameras to diverse participants to freely capture themselves nude in front of mirrors.
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.”
