Winogrand is the archetypal street photographer, remarkably instinctive who once stated “I photograph to find out what something will look like photographed.”In the early 1970s, John Szarkowski (curator of photography at MoMA at the time) selected eighty-five images featuring women from hundreds of photographs by Garry Winogrand. The resulting book, Women are Beautiful, offers a random collection of women caught on the street, in parks, getting into cars, at parties, marching in parades, skinny-dipping in ponds. Is it the elucidation of an attraction, of style, of activity, or of gender in an era of transition? Item #5060
