About this Item

Oblong Octavo. 110 (2)pp. Original photo-illustrated wraps over gray cloth with blind-stamped lettering on cover, gilt on spine. Tan endpapers. Frontispiece photograph. Introduction and selection of photographs in this book by Tod Papageorge. The intriguing photographs were part of Winogrand's "Public Relations" project exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art. "Public Relations is a distillation of a photographic project started by Garry Winogrand in 1969, when he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship to photograph what he calls "the effect of the media on events." By this if might be assumed that he meant to investigate what the historian Daniel Boorstin has described as "pseudo-events," those assemblies, councils, and elaborate contract signings convoked for the purpose of ratifying with words and pictures what agents and lawyers have already decided over lunch. By the late 1960s, however, Boorstin's conception of ersatz ritual was endemic to, and in fact seemed to be, the American environment, and Winogrand, armed as he was with a pilgrim's energy and the devil's own intelligence, understood this well" (publisher). DJ with light wear along edges, light creasing and minor chips. Binding with minor sunning at edges near spine. DJ in overall good+, binding and interior in very good condition.

About this title

Synopsis:

[What Winogrand] has given us in these photographs is a unilateral report of how we behaved under pressure during a time of costumes and causes, and of how extravagantly, outrageously and continuously we displayed what we wanted. --Tod Papageorge
Public Relations is a distillation of a photographic project begun by Garry Winogrand in 1969 when he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship to photograph what he called "the effect of media on events." With his characteristic zeal, passion, spontaneity and intensity, Winogrand photographed an array of public events including museum openings, press conferences, sports games, demonstrations, award ceremonies, a birthday party and a moon shot. The photographs depict our emerging dependence on the media as well as how the media changes and sometimes even creates the event itself. First published to accompany a 1977 exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Review:

No shot is about just one thing. Winogrand the stalker may anger his subject: What we see is sometimes what he partly caused. (Joseph McElroy Artforum International 2013-07-01)
