24. Ann (Slingshot) by Ryan McGinley, 2007
Ryan McGinley's photographs are images that conjure up feelings of long road trips and a drifting, free-wheeling lifestyle that exists without passports, bank accounts, and clothes. McGinley's intimate snapshots reflect a distinct sense of fleeting whimsy and actions without consequence. His rise to fame in the art world was quick—one that has become as historical as his work itself—yet he continues to innovate, with Ann (Slingshot) being a definitive image in his vast, thought-provoking portfolio.
