Ryan McGinley's Olympic Athletes

Ryan McGinley recently teamed up with Rodarte and a slew of Olympic hopefuls (think Shawn White, Evan Lysacek, Hannah Kearney, and Anders Johnson) to create a portfolio of dreamy - if not other-worldly - images that place a new light on the athletes and the gravity-defying places they inhabit. Even more interesting might be the complete lack of nudity so often found in Mr. McGinley's work. See the full collection of images here.
