Unemployed in Summertime: Ryan McGinley

I've posted before about Ryan McGinley and how his photographs seem to me to be a frenzied celebration of youth. I love to look at them in the summertime, when school recesses and nobody wants to give a PhD student a minimum wage for three months. It's fine, they say. You live in Neverland. You are young and immortal and the sky is purple. They're all about bonfires and road trips and swimming naked and having absolutely nowhere to be. Here are a few of my favorite pictures he took in 2011.
