After two months of shooting on the road, photographer Ryan McGinley returns to New York to indulge in his favorite foods before going on a fast. While sharing a week of meals and meeting with his readers, he eats cupcakes with REM lead-singer Michael Stipe, downs Milk Duds with his gallerist Jose Freire, and munches on a Caesar salad during a phone conversation with the actress Tilda Swinton. McGinley relishes Mexican food at Downtown Bakery, oysters at Blue Ribbon, and smoothies at Liquiteria, while rating movies he’s just seen: two thumbs up for Brüno and two thumbs down for the new Harry Potter. He also expresses his sadness over the death of his friend Dash Snow and gives an open invitation to his inner world at BEast, where he spins an eclectic mix of music weekly.
