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.

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).
