New York-based editorial photographer Ryan McGinley is known for his edgy and outlandish photo shoots. He is a leading force in the photography community and has made a name for himself with his gritty and raw take on portrait photography.

Ryan was born in Ramsey, NJ and he now calls New York home, like most famous editorial photographers. He is regularly sought after by leading magazines and fashion brands because his work gets noticed. Whether he is using animals in combination with bare-skinned beauties or just naked people running through fields, Ryan McGinley has found out what he is good.

His most recent work for Edun's Autum/Winter 2012 collection features another editorial photo shoot involving animals and humans; this time, Ryan uses rare birds as the accent subject for each model. It's no wonder Ryan McGinley has been so successful over the years, because he isn't afraid to showcase what others might consider taboo.
