American Suburb X: An Interview with Garry Winogrand (1981)

An excerpt of an interview between Garry Winogrand and Barbara Diamonstein, published in American Suburb X. Winogrand talks about his book Public Relations (“I don’t think anything happens without the press, one way or the other), how he came to take the zoo photographs in The Animals, while visiting with his children, and how he organizes his negatives (“It’s hopeless. I’ve given up). 

The 1981 interview originally appeared in Visions and Images: American Photographers on Photography by Barbara Diamonstein, published by Rizoli. Read the interview here.
