Garry Winogrand

Garry Winogrand was a legendary American photographer, regarded as highly influential for his street photographs documenting the social and cultural landscape of mid-century metropolitan United States. Shot almost exclusively in black and white, Winogrand’s images provide a slice of 20th-century American culture, replete with all the nightlife, excitement, heartbreak, trauma, and banality that constitutes life. “Photography is not about the thing photographed,” he famously said. “It is about how that thing looks photographed.” You can read more about Garry Winogrand here: http://www.artnet.com/artists/garry-winogrand/
