Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable
Described as a philosopher of photography, Garry Winogrand captured the streets of America in the ‘60s and ‘70s. His lens snapped images of everyday people from the Mad Men era of NYC to the early years of the Women’s Movement to post-Golden Age Hollywood, all while observing themes of cultural upheaval, political disillusionment, and alienation.
The film includes selections from thousands of rolls of film still undeveloped upon his unexpected death in 1984. Director Sasha Waters Freyer assesses the artist and the man, and clearly shows us why he made a difference.
