Entrance Romance – A Film by Ryan McGinley

25 Jun

When discussing the coolness of modern photographers and creatives, Ryan McGinley is one ice cold Fonzarelli motherfucker. His photographs have been exhibited internationally (he was the youngest artist to have a solo show at the Whitney Museum back in 2002) and his magazine credits include Vice, Dazed and Confused, Index, V, The Fader, I-D, Dutch, Butt and The New York Times Magazine. His influence on modern photography is irrefutable. McGinley’s latest project is Entrance Romance, a short film shot on a Phantom camera (an HD camera capable of capturing video at over 1000 frames per second). It features Carolyn Murphy (the face of Estée Lauder since 2002) in extreme slo-mo as she turns a can of WD-40 into a flame thrower, kisses a dog and has a bowl of goldfish smash over her head. The vibe is meditative as the slow visuals combine with a soundtrack of chants. This is McGinley’s second short film offering for 2010 – earlier this year he collaborated with Pringle of Scotland for a moody video showcasing their Spring/Summer collection. Watch Entrance Romance bleow and enjoy!
