COURTESY OF SALVATORE FERRAGAMO On December 1, photographer and filmmaker Francesco Carrozzini debuts "A Man's Story," a series of short films and photographs commissioned by Salvatore Ferragamo under the brand's creative director, Massimiliano Giornetti. The project stars seven men who, according to Carrozzini, "are not afraid to make their own rules, even when it's meant potential failure." One of the featured rule- breakers, Ryan McGinley, shares how he developed his craft, creating the emotionally arresting images of naked youth for which he's known: "I think for the first five years of making photographs, it was all documentary. Basically, it was about me being a fly on the wall waiting for things to happen. I wasn't really making photographs; I was taking photographs. But then I got impatient, and I didn't want to wait anymore. I realized that I loved the human body, that when people took their clothes off, they had my full attention. I love studying the body and I love movement—like when something's happening and it feels exciting and it feels like a moment." "A Man's Story" is on view at By Tali Jaffe Portrait by Francesco Carrozzini 106 CULTURED
