Ryan McGinley: Naked and Famous by Alice Gregory

In the beginning, Ryan McGinley was an outsider. He used his band of beautiful friends to create photographs—rarely not naked but never quite sexy—that he now calls “evidence of fun.” But in the past decade, McGinley’s vision has evolved and expanded into a tidal wave of influence, affecting the look of art, advertising, music videos, film, even Instagram—and making him arguably the most important photographer in America. So why are so many of us just learning his name?

The Dead Zoo Gang by Charles Homans

“Over the last several years, millions of dollars worth of antique rhino horns have been stolen form collections around the world. The only thing more unusual than the crimes is the theory about who is responsible: A handful of families from rural Ireland known as the Rathkeale Rovers.”

Pixel And Dimed: On (Not) Getting By In The Gig Economy by Sarah Kessler

For one month, I became the “micro-entrepreneur” touted by companies like TaskRabbit, Postmates, and Airbnb. Instead of the labor revolution I had been promised, all I found was hard work, low pay, and a system that puts workers at a disadvantage.

The Devil and the Art Dealer by Alex Shoumatoff

It was the greatest art theft in history: 650,000 works looted from Europe by the Nazis, many of which were never recovered. But last November the world learned that German authorities had found a trove of 1,280 paintings, drawings, and prints worth more than a billion dollars in the Munich apartment of a haunted white-haired recluse. Amid an international uproar, Alex Shoumatoff follows a century-old trail to reveal the crimes—and obsessions—involved.
