McGinley's Box

Package from Kathy Ryan © Foam

It's one of the perks of working at Foam. You come across some pretty interesting stuff during a day's work. I happened to glimpse this little mystery item as we prepare to open the show, The New York Times Photographs, next week.

Much sports photography tends to be pretty conventional, but Ryan McGinley's work for the 2004 Olympic Games produced some stunningly different images from the poolside. Now I know photography is more about having a good eye than a good camera, but I'd quite like to see what equipment he used to get those pictures. That's if it really is a camera in that box. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
