Garry Winogrand is considered one of the most important American photographers of the 20th century, during which he amassed an archive of images capturing its evolving attitudes and anxieties. Legend has it that the minute he stepped into a darkroom in college, Winogrand forever abandoned painting for the camera. He began his career as a freelance journalistic photographer, but upon seeing Walker Evans’s book American Photographs was so deeply moved that he decided to change this approach to the medium. Winogrand was known best for his street photography, and for capturing moments of everyday American life in the post-war era. “No moment is most important,” he once said. “Any moment can be something.” He used a small-format camera, which suited his many travels and liberated his movement in the streets. At the time of his sudden death, he left behind thousands of rolls of undeveloped film.
