Photographer Ryan McGinley has always been involved in music: recently he directed Friends Forever a short film about Girls and Smith Westerns; Sigur Rós chose one of his pictures to be the cover of their album Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust; The Virgins were formed thanks to him and he also took pictures of M.I.A for The New York Times.
As if this wasn’t enough, Atlas Sound played live at the opening of his new exhibtion, Animals at Team Gallery on May 3rd. He first played at the rooftop, but was shut down by the police, so he finished his performance inside the gallery.
If you are not local to New York, you can check out the gallery + McGinley’s Animals installment on the Team Gallery Site here.
