Garry Winogrand is one of the most iconic photographers of all time, deemed as a street photographer, his work is a part of the prestigious Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), in New York City. The seeming simplicity of Winogrand’s work is its strength. I Appreciate his work as it influences memory within me.
His use of light and reflection is inspiring. He has the ability of taking a simple seen image, and producing something that has the balance of a posed image.
His ability to capture something special in an instant is remarkable. His ‘photographers eye’ just seems to be able to capture something as simple as a pose, or a look within an image to instantly make the photo.
Seeing Winogrand used a wide angle lens, he would have needed to be within touching distance of his subject. This would be an advantage when the need of reaction or interaction in an image, however when seclusion is better then that would have been a challenge.
There are so many images to choose from when it comes to Garry Winogrand, it is worth a look at his archive.
