“I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs,” Garry Winogrand is known to have said, and he had a profoundly prolific creative life to support his curiosity. At the time of his death in 1984, he left behind 2,500 rolls of undeveloped film, and his total collection was comprised of hundreds of thousands of negatives and slides. Considered to be one of the most important photographers of the 20th century, Winogrand was primarily concerned with photographing American social issues and people of the 1960s, and did so with a street photographer’s rapid panache. This travelling show, which originated at SFMOMA, is the first comprehensive Winogrand exhibit in 25 years.
