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.From Publishers Weekly:
Director of photographic exhibitions for New York's Museum of Modern Art, Szarkowski in this companion volume to a show traveling nationwide celebrates a camera artist whose pictures for decades elevated the mundane in American life to a distinctive, almost ethereal stature. Random-looking, even disorderly at times, Winogrand's images, his humanistic "figments" of reality, catch the eye in a detached, virtually trance-like mood: a blonde female flight attendant carrying a black child; a couple in a tentative sidewalk embrace seen over the shoulder of a distressed pedestrian; a Maine family trio inexplicably sad and perhaps angry; and the cover shot, a diapered toddler emerging from a dark garage interior toward an over-turned kiddie car in a brooding desert scene. Winogrand (1928-1984), in an era of ferment for artistic photography, produced as many as a half-million film images, many of which are published here for the first time.
