Looking at Photos the Master Never Saw: When Images Come to Life After Death

GW.01.0543.Y

Many of Winogrand’s photographs included in the current retrospective on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art were printed posthumously.  Arthur Lubow of the New York Times wonders: is the artistry of photography in clicking the shutter or is it in the editing process? Can posthumous prints truly express an artist’s vision?

There is an endless anxiety on the issue of how authorship works in photography. –Jeff Rosenheim, curator in charge of the photography department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
