Garry Winogrand-Jeu de Paume

Added on by sanam gharagozlou.

With one third of the photos developed for this exhibition, this is the first big exhibit of Winogrand since 1987.

Better known for his street photography of New York in the 1950's and 1960's he was nonetheless a prolific photographer, leaving behind an astounding number of undeveloped films when he died at the age of 56.

Here we see his close-ups of pedestrians, interrupting a couple's kiss or surprising a monkey that's in the back of a car. He's in the street and the subject often looks at him, us, with defiance, surprise. Traveling through the United States, images of La Guardia airport.  

With the years, the mood turns a bit less gleeful.
