Behind the scenes: Garry Winogrand at work

Winogrand is widely acknowledged and appreciated as one of the greats of this type of photography – and deservedly so. Compare the weird tickish movement of camera to eye and back (the camera barely stopping at his eye) and the elegance of his compositions. It is a bit of a painful bottled phrase to say someone has a good eye, but here is a wonderful example of someone who did. Of course taking as many images as he did helped, I’m sure. But, no doubt, his processing/anticipation of what potentially would resonant visually or otherwise be compelling was special. And, notice the whole time that the gear and technical regard for exposure are ultimately subservient to some greater content. He says of photography: “it is the closest I get to not existing”.
