Ryan McGinley, Marmoset (LSD), 2012.
Studio Voltaire has commissioned the celebrated American photographer Ryan McGinley to produce a new limited edition work. The image is taken from McGinley’s acclaimed Animals series, a body of work that consists of colour studio portraits of live animals and nude models. The artist visits various animal sanctuaries, zoos and rescue centres across the United States, erecting a mobile studio to record the interaction between the animal and the model. Studio Voltaire’s new edition features a small monkey perched on the knees of a nude model against a green background.
