Known for his evocative, playful portrait photography, American artist and fashion photographer Ryan McGinley has borne witness to youth and subcultures from the 90s to now. His early photos displayed the unseen intersection of skateboard and graffiti culture from a queer perspective, and to this day he has an ongoing practice that includes photographing members of his creative community in New York.

In this exclusive exhibition for PHOTO 2024, McGinley teams up with local pop sensation Troye Sivan, two artists vocally championing LGBTQIA+ stories and activisms. Featuring photography originally shot for Hero Magazine, this exhibition is a cross-generational celebration of queer joy, including new images as yet unreleased from the series.

Ryan x Troye runs concurrently with the Australian Premiere of YEARBOOK, McGinley’s epic photographic installation at Shepparton Art Museum for PHOTO 2024.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
