Ryan McGinley's 'Whistle for the Wind' compendium follows the whims of young American travelers. Shot among various landscapes, sometimes barren, other times aquatic, the McGinley images all feature captures of a laid-back nomadic culture. The frolicking individuals are also entirely nude, further driving home the earthy nature of this rambunctious clan.

McGinley is known for his ability to document his generation. His detailed following of epic summer road trips have made viewers long for warm weather, and a whimsical adventure rid of societal constraints. This 256-page Whistle for the Wind book showcases the best of these road trips, transporting onlookers to times void of formality, fabric and at base-care. This nomadic group of travelers epitomize the concept of free spirited youth, displaying an attractive mix of apathy and adventure.
