Ryan McGinley’s Untiteld (Morrissey 7) belongs to a series of works created between 2004 and 2006, for which the artist travelled to dozens of Morrissey concerts in the US, the UK, and Mexico. The resultant photos, bathed in densely saturated colour and light, feature hoards of fans submerged in a state of enamoured devotion. Based in New York, McGinley is fascinated by youth culture, and his candid photographs capture the Zeitgeist of a particular generation of adolescents. Another work from the series is held in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.
