A Look Inside Ryan McGinley’s Mirror Mirror (NSFW)

It’s been such a long time since I’ve written anything about books that is hard to imagine that Papiro & Mint has actually started with the idea of sharing content about photography books that I’ve started to collect. But since the very first post on this website is about Ryan McGinley’s You and I, there is nothing better than to share some of my thoughts about his latest book, Mirror Mirror.

Released by Rizzoli Electra, Mirror Mirror is an interesting project where McGinley asked his friends to take a series of photos of themselves, with instructions from the photographer. Giving them only a set of mirrors and a camera, the result are several nude photos of different body types exploring the relation between their body and image – a collaboration that comes both from the view of McGinley and the self-perception of the people who are taking the photo.

A book way more interesting and personal than his latest, The Kids Are All Right, you can find it on Amazon for only 35 dollars. I bought this book on an amazing bookstore called Books & Books at Lincon Road in Miami and even though it cost more than that, I’m extremely pleased with it both for the quality and by the fact is my fourth Ryan McGinley book. With that, I’ve decided to take some pictures for you to take a look.

Remembering this is 216 page book and the photos that are displayed here are for entertaining purposes only. All the images and credits belongs to Ryan McGinley and his representatives. You can buy Mirror Mirror here.
