Published to coincide with the exhibition “Ryan McGinley, Moonmilk” at Alison Jacques Gallery, filled with dreamlike photographs of the artist’s friends, nude in various caves.
The images, ethereal, in unusual exposures and color tones, are from a year McGinley and his friends spent exploring caves. Inscribed on the title page in the hand of the artist, “How to disappear / Darktown, USA / crystals / color rooms / crooked isles / colossal cave / adventures!”.
