      Would you find something interesting in a zoo? Garry Winogrand could, and he did capture it very well.

    2. Kim on said:

      Interesting photos from the sixties taken at a zoo of humans and animals in all their essence, full of humor and crudity. Sometimes the humans in the photos were more interesting than the animals. Some of the photos have more of a bad photo for the family album feel than art. Depressing, negative afterward written by John Szarkowsi.

      Who is looking at what? Are we a 'moving zoo' for the animals in the zoo? Once you see these pictures you will never see a zoo in the same way.

      Even though I like this book and I think most of the pictures are really great, I think I like his take on people better than animals.
