Photographer Ryan McGinley has always created the kind of images that others can only dream of – permanent, seemingly ageless echoes of youthful hedonism and brazen nudity. After several months lingering on our web browser ‘favourites’ tab, his Life Adjustment Centre series still has our vote for the iconic images of 2010. The strangely stylised, predominantly studio shot images reflect the normality of his subjects. When stripped bare, everyone has mad thoughts, gargantuan dreams, quiet despair, bitter regrets or a closet full of bones.
