Dashwood Book’s second Ryan McGinley publication “Life Adjustment Center” an exhibition opening October 29, 2010 at Ratio3 in San Francisco. Two themes are presented in this book, firstly a collection of b&w studio nudes many with wild animals, an extension of the studio series “Everybody Knows This is Nowhere”. The second features one of McGinley’s core elements as a photographer, “capturing his subjects in dreamlike compositions, rich in motion and color, during recent adventures on the road”. The book is bound in a blue cloth with red text on cover and spine and a red stain to the page edges.
For the longest time I’ve wondered what it must have looked like to be on the inside of a wholecar that had just been painted. Thanks to this picture, I have the answer.

“Owner of This World is a series of photographs made during the four months that my son, Max Records, worked as an actor in Where the Wild Things Are, Spike Jonze’s film adaptation of the Maurice Sendak classic. Max was nine years old at the time, and neither he nor anyone in our family had been involved in the film industry before. Though the majority of these photographs were made behind the scenes, my goals were far more personal than objective. Beyond documenting Hollywood’s incongruities, I think of this series more as a manifestation of my own anxieties; a collection of both fears and reassurances, upon letting my son out into a world that’s beyond my control. In this particular image, for example… that may as well be me clutching the sides of the boat. The water may be only waist-deep, but if it’s murky, you can’t always see the bottom.”
When the site is complete, it’ll be one of the most versatile subway graffiti archives ever.
