      So many of Winogrand's shots are so moving, in such weird ways. Love his work, and this book rocks.

      Al morir Winogrand en 1984, John Szarkowski, como director de la sección de fotografía del MOMA, decide realizar una exposición monográfica póstuma para lo cual visita a la viuda del artista con idea de recopilar todo el trabajo de Winogrand. Con gran sorpresa se encuentra con la siguiente situación:"more than 2500 rolls of exposed film remained undeveloped, which seemed appalling, but the real situation was much worse. An additional 6500 rolls had been developed but not proofed. Contact s [...]

      Panoramica sulla sterminata produzione di un fotografo compulsivo, che ha lasciato una mole di foto grondanti vita e disordine. Diviso in temi che ricalcano alcune sue pubblicazioni: i primi reportage, le donne, la strada, la società degli anni 60, lo zoo, l'opera inedita. Quest'ultima consiste in decine di migliaia di scatti mai provinati o mai sviluppati, che alcuni intrepidi hanno visionato per realizzare una selezione.Il saggio introduttivo di Szarkowski è come sempre un'ottima lettura, an [...]

      Garry Winogrand takes great candid people shots most from the hip it seems, while walking through NYC. He has an interesting eye for composition, and always seems to get people's faces at just the right moment. He also has a dry photographic sense of humor that I enjoy.This is a big heavy book and the photographs are printed very well.

    5. Joy on said:

      A grand read so far. I'll take my time with this one, as I have it checked out over the summer from the College for Creative Studies. It seems like a fine estimation of the enormous body of work from an underrated and little-known street photographer (outside the photography world, anyway).

    6. Jil on said:

      Peace Demonstration in Central Park, 1968 is one of the most beautiful photographs I've ever seen. The essay at the front wasn't anything to take your breath away, some of the photos didn't kill me, but when he gets it right, he REALLY gets it right.

    7. Jim on said:

      Great overview of Gary Winogrand's work. I read it because I wanted to see the results of his use of the 28mm focal length, wider than most street/documentary photographers use. It was enlightening.
