Ryan McGinley Meets Robert Frank

April 30, 2010

Esquire recently assigned [McGinley] to shoot Robert Frank, known as a photographer who waits for the moment. Mr. McGinley, who shoots as much as he can in the belief that “editing is just as good as shooting,” said he was aware that Mr. Frank was irritated by him. “I just started shooting, and I could tell the sound of the shutter going off was driving him nuts, like the sound of a machine gun.”

From a 2007 New York times article on Ryan McGinley. Imagining this encounter I can’t help but think of the Nixon/Elvis photo or David Bowie and Bing Crosby singing a duet.
