But I was even more surprised with the name of the photographer.
It was Ryan McGinley!
Now you might not know this, but he is one of my favourite photographers.
I love the way I always get surprised by new work of him:)
Ryan McGinley is only 30 years old and lives in New York and he's very big in the artscene there. He started with photography as a teenager documenting his friends in NY. The art community started to take notice of him when he published a book called 'The kids are alright' and sent it to the artists and magazine editors he loved. At the age of 25, he was the joungest person ever to be given a solo exhibiton in the Witney Museum of American Art. He used to only take pictures of his friends but his newest photographs are shot mainly in a natural settings and focused on subjects interacting spontaneously.
I'm totally in love with his work. All of his pictures have such a strong feeling or mood to them. And I've seen them so many times now but they never get boring:
The band Sigur Rós used a photo of him for their album 'Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust':
