Ryan McGinley Goes to the Pool

Today's New York Times Magazine includes a photo feature on Olympic swimmers by downtown darling photog Ryan McGinley.

This work lacks the spontaneity and joy seen in the photographs of his unclothed friends cavorting in the water, but it does present a view of these aquamen and women that will be a nice tonic in upcoming weeks. When, after the games begin, you reach a point where you've had your fill of seeing these athletes presented as red, white, and blue draped heroes collecting medals in the name of freedom, democracy, and homeland security, take a trip back to the Times site to get a fresh view of them through McGinley's eye.

The Times website has made McGinley's published portfolio available online. Also included is a second group of photos with material that did not appear in print.
