Garry Winogrand on Vision and Images

by

Just because you didn’t get to go to that awesome photography conference doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something from the pros! Occasionally, we’ll be featuring a recommended photography lecture or interview on Phototuts+.

Today, we're featuring a film from the Duke University Library - Digital Collections. Garry Winogrand was broadly known for his portrayal of American life. From glitz to grime, he seemed to document it all. He is an inspiration for "street photographer" as that's how he spent a lot of his time. This interview, filmed just a few years before his early death, shows Winogrand's unconventional and at times difficult personality.

At the time of his death, it's stated that he left behind over 300,000 unedited images. In addition to his published work, that makes a huge volume of photographs. The man lived to shoot, and shoot he did.

You can see a collection of his work at the website for the Museum of Contemporary Photography.
