There are Two Kinds of People
I didn’t go to Parsons’s graduation ceremony last month, but people tell me I missed a remarkable commencement speech delivered by photographer Ryan McGinley. Luckily, his studio already put it on YouTube. It is almost certainly a good idea to pay attention to whatever advice McGinley gives to emerging photographers for a number of reasons. For example, he had a solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2003, when he was 25. He also was named Young Photographer of the Year by the International Center of Photography in 2007, and has since been called things like “the most important photographer in America” and “the pied piper of the downtown art world.” He also used to have my job as photo editor of VICE, where he gave buckets of deserving young artists their first chances at editorial work.
