Synopsis: Back in Print! The first comprehensive overview of the work of Garry Winogrand, long out of print and difficult to come by, contains an eloquent and important essay on the life and work of the photographer by John Szarkowski and a lavish plate section presenting the photographs thematically. Grouped under the following titles-- Eisenhower Years, The Street, Women, The Zoo, On the Road, The Sixties, Etc, The Fort Worth Fat Stock Show and Rodeo, Airport and Unfinished Work-- many of the 179 plates are works that had never before been published. The last section includes 25 pictures chosen from the enormous body of work that Winogrand left unedited at the time of his death in 1984. In his essay, Szarkowski, who knew the photographer well during most of his career, describes the development of Winogrand's pictorial strategies during his years as a photojournalist, the increasing complexity of his motifs as he pursued more personal goals, and the challenge posed for other photographers by the powerful and distinctive authority of Winogrand's best work, "with its manic sense of a life balanced somewhere between animal high spirits and an apprehension of moral disaster."

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.
