RAMSEY, N.J. – Happy Birthday to Ramsey's Ryan McGinley!
Ryan McGinley, born in Ramsey, turns 38 Saturday.
McGinley, a photographer based in New York City, was born Oct. 17, 1977.
McGinley began his photography career at 18, enrolling at the Parsons School of Design in New York in 1995.
After a public display of his work in 2000, a self-made collection of his photographs ended up in the hands of curator Sylvia Wolf, who later put together an exhibition at the Whitney Museum of Art.
At 25, he was one of the youngest artists ever to receive that honor. Since then, he has produced short films and provided editorial work for the New York Times Magazine, Oscars and the Olympics.
