Garry Winogrand in ARTnews

Winogrand

In this article from ARTnews, Hilarie M. Sheets discusses Garry Winogrand’s first retrospective in 25 years, what it meant for Leo Rubinfien to posthumously edit the 6,600 rolls of unproccessed film and whether Winogrand would approve of the selection.

Garry Winogrand was like a hunter with his camera, ever prowling the crowded streets of New York and the roadways of the nation for the happenstance of human incident. His best-known images from the 1960s—of beautiful women, businessmen, animals, and American spectacles of all kinds—teem with ebullience, humor, and haphazardness. These were qualities shared by the gregarious man himself, who was promoted by the influential Museum of Modern Art photography curator John Szarkowski as the “central photographer of his generation.” –Hilarie M.
