UNTITLED art fair announced today that famed photographer Ryan McGinley will host its vernissage in Miami Beach this December honoring ACRIA, a leading research and education organization working to help people with HIV and AIDS.
To raise support for ACRIA, McGinley will offer three limited edition photographs of his 2014 Pairie (Pond) from his ongoing road trip series. Since 2005, McGinley has been traveling across the United States with a mass of models and assistants to capture stunningly raw portraits within the American landscape. Pairie (Pond), a large scale photograph at 90 x 60 inches, features a naked boy curled up, face buried in high grass near placid pond.

In addition to McGinley's work, ACRIA will present a number of other objects and prints for sale to benefit its cause, including a new edition by well-known photographer Jack Pierson.
UNTITLED's vernissage (invite only) will open on December 1 in Miami Beach, Florida.
