JOE MCNALLY

“As a photographer its better to ask for forgiveness than permission.”

Joe McNally es un fotógrafo y fotoperiodista norteamericano aclamado internacionalmente. Fue fotógrafo de plantilla de la revista LIFE de 1994 hasta 1998, el primero en 23 años.

Su serie más conocida es “Faces of Ground Zero – Portraits of the Heroes of September 11th”, una colección de 246 retratos tomados en el Moby c Studio cerca de la Zona Cero en un periodo de tres semanas próximas al 11S. Una amplia muestra de estas fotos históricas, reproducidas a tamaño natural, fue exhibida en siete ciudades en 2002 y fue vista por casi un millón de personas. La venta de 55.000 copias del libro de la exposición, impreso por LIFE, recaudó más de 2 millones de dólares de ayuda para el 11S. Esta colección está considerada por muchos museos y profesionales del arte como la obra artística más significativa desarrollada alrededor de la tragedia del 11S.

Otras series fotográficas reconocidas de McNally son:

“The Future of Flying”: portada y reportaje de 32 páginas en National Geographic Magazine en diciembre de 2003. El reportaje, acerca del futuro de la aviación y el primero tomado íntegramente en formato digital de la revista, conmemoraba el centenario del vuelo de los hermanos Wright. Este número fue National Magazine Award Finalist y el más vendido de la historia.

“The Bolshoi Ballet” – De esta serie de LIFE sobre el Ballet Bolshoi surge una de las imágenes más conocidas de McNally, “Ballerina on the Rooftop.”

“Olympic Nude Series” – Aclamada serie de desnudos en color y blanco y negro del equipo olímpico de Estados Unidos de 1996, publicada en LIFE. La única vez en su historia que la revista LIFE publicó 4 portadas distintas en un mismo mes.

McNally es conocido a nivel mundial por su habilidad para producir trabajos técnica y logísticamente complejos con un magistral uso del color y de la luz. Imparte numerosos workshops alrededor del mundo como parte de su labor docente y ha recibido numerosos premios, incluidos el prestigioso Alfred Eisenstadt Award, el Pictures of the Year, y el World Press Photo Foundation Award (ganando el primer lugar en Retratos en 1997).

Joe McNally is an internationally acclaimed American photographer and long-time photojournalist. From 1994 until 1998, he was LIFE magazine’s staff photographer, the first one in 23 years.

His most well known series is the “Faces of Ground Zero – Portraits of the Heroes of September 11th”, a collection of 246 Giant Polaroid portraits shot in the Moby c Studio near Ground Zero in a three-week period shortly after 9/11. A large group of these historic, compelling life-size (9’ x 4’) photos were exhibited in seven cities in 2002, seen by almost a million people. The sale of 55,000 copies of the exhibit book, printed by LIFE, raised over $2 million for the 9/11-relief effort. This collection is considered by many museum and art professionals to be the most significant artistic endeavor to evolve to date from the 9/11 tragedy.

Some of McNally’s other renowned photographic series include:

“The Future of Flying”, cover & 32-page story, National Geographic Magazine, December 2003. The story, on the future of aviation and the first all digital shoot for the magazine, commemorated the centennial observance of the Wright Brothers’ flight. This issue was a National Magazine Award Finalist and the magazine’s best-selling issue ever.

“The Bolshoi Ballet” – This LIFE series of Bolshoi Ballet images resulted in the creation of one of McNally’s most well known images, “Ballerina on the Rooftop.”
“Olympic Nude Series” – A highly touted series of black & white and color photos depicting the United States 1996 Olympic team as a series of nude figure studies, published in LIFE. The only time in the history of LIFE the magazine ran 4 separate covers in one month.

As a commemorative, McNally did a photo diary of New York City Opera’s historic first tour to Japan as part of the World Expo 2005. An exhibit of this collection was featured at Lincoln Center.
McNally is known worldwide for his ability to produce technically and logistically complex assignments with expert use of color and light. He conducts numerous workshops around the world as part of his teaching activities, and is the recipient of numerous awards, including the prestigious Alfred Eisenstadt Award for outstanding magazine photography, as well as Pictures of the Year, and World Press Photo Foundation Award (awarded first place in Portraits in 1997).
