Garry Winogrand Retrospective in The Paris Review

Winogrand

Richard Woodward reviewed the Garry Winogrand retrospective at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, writing that Winogrand would have found ample subjects to photograph at the opening:

 Looking around the opening, it was hard not to compare the people in the photographs with the crowds in the galleries. Gray-haired or balding though his friends are now, the reason for parties doesn’t change. There were still men in black tie (the ideal outfit for a photograph in monochrome) and women in slinky dresses, and the defining public gesture of the evening and our day—hunched figures of all ages staring importantly into their smart phones—suggested that, were Winogrand alive, modern America would give him plenty of material to work with. –Richard Woodward
