In 2003, hipster artist extraordinare Ryan McGinley once told The Advocate that he wasn't interested in fashion editorial work: "It may be fine for someone else, but I'm just not interested in taking photographs of other people's clothes. My photos are about something that's really personal to me and the people that are involved in my life." He's since gone on to shoot one of our favorite Kate Moss spreads ever, and create a video project for Puma. Now we hear he's recruiting models around town for two major photo shoots - POP and French Vogue - both of which should be amazing. And though yes, the models in his shoot are often mostly naked, there's at least some fashion on display. And frankly, we love that he changed his mind since his photography tends to make the prettiest clothes even prettier. So until those European shoots debut, you can still catch his very naked, very sunny "I Know Where the Summer Goes" exhibit at the Team Gallery in NYC.
