About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of photographs representative of Winogrand's work from the early 1960's to just before his death in 1984.

About the Author:

Garry Winogrand was born in 1928 and raised in the Bronx. After high school and two years in the army, he briefly studied painting at Columbia University until a friend showed him the darkroom in the basement of the school's architecture building. I never looked back, he later said. For some years he worked as a freelance photojournalist and in advertising; by the 1960s his distinctive themes and style had begun to emerge. The Museum of Modern Art first substantially showed his work in 1963, and later held two one-man exhibitions, The Animals, in 1969, and Public Relations, in 1976. Winogrand received three Guggenheim fellowships for special photographic projects. He taught at Chicago's Institute of Design and then for five years at the University of Texas in Austin. In 1978 he moved to Los Angeles, where he took pictures incessantly. Although Winogrand was an articulate and conscientious teacher, he resisted talking about his own photography. The artist is irrelevant once the work exists, he said. All there is is the pictures. Winogrand died in 1984.
