About the artwork
Studio Voltaire has commissioned the celebrated American photographer Ryan McGinley to produce a new limited edition work.
The image is taken from McGinley’s acclaimed Animals series, a body of work that consists of colour studio portraits of live animals and nude models. The artist visited various animal sanctuaries, zoos and rescue centres across the United States, erecting a mobile studio to record the interaction between the animal and the model.
Special thanks to Ryan McGinley, Alison Jacques Gallery, London and Team Gallery, New York.
About the artist
Ryan McGinley lives and works in New York. New Jersey native, Ryan McGinley, began documenting his friends and Lower East Side subculture in New York City when he was a teenager.

His large-format colour photographs soon graced the walls of the Whitney Museum of American Art, where he was the youngest person ever, at the age of 25, to be given a solo exhibition. Recent solo exhibitions include Mirror, Mirror, Team Gallery, NYC, (2018); The Spirit of Pride, Soft Opening, London (2018); My NY, Tomio Koyama Gallery, Tokyo (2018); Paradiso, Ratio 3, SF, CA (2018); Early, Team Gallery, NYC (2017); The Kids Were Alright, Denver (2017); Yearbook, La Termica, Spain (2017); Body Loud, Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, Japan (2016).
