Tribute

Thirty-three years ago, on 19 March 1984, Garry Winogrand, the American photographer who died in Tijuana, Mexico. For the last post of the week, I pay tribute today to this great photographer. Born in 1928 in New York, he was famous for his black and white snapshots portraying an eloquent portrait of the United States. From the 1950s until the early 1980s, Garry Winogrand is undoubtedly one of the great masters of street photography with Robert Frank, Saul Leiter, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans…

My reference book is certainly that of Garry Winogrand, a book of 464 pages containing more than 400 black and white photographs. This book was published by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) on the occasion of the Garry Winogrand exhibition organized by Leo Rubinfien with Érin O’toole and Sarah Greenough in 2013. If you have the opportunity to possess this book, I advise you warmly, it features only exceptional photos.

Death suddenly at the age of 56, Garry Winogrand left us thousands of images of an authentic America on a not so distant era, in any case for me! Thanks for all your Garry pictures.
