Ryan McGinley has always photographed his friends and colleagues. Whether during the now legendary roadtrips he organised with a large group of 20-somethings documenting their summer exploits, or during the years spent in the heart of New York, photographing the magical years of adolescence.
A few years ago, however, he wanted to challenge his creative habits and asked more than one hundred friends and colleagues – equipped with detailed instructions and an analogue camera given to them by the artist – to pose nude for self-portraits using mirrors and other props. Although similar to the ubiquitous selfie, participants did not have the advantage of seeing the image before pressing the shutter.

In addition, McGinley was responsible for the selection of the photographs, choosing from dozens of intimate and psychologically revealing photos that, although not taken by him, bear his signature in their depth and emotional resonance.
