We recently visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the Gary Winogrand retrospective.
Winogrand was an iconic American photographer and one of the most prolific artists in history. His subject matter was American life, particularly documenting the shifting cultural and political climate of the 1960's and 70's. His images are brimming with life, humor, and a sense of investigation -- he called himself "a student of America."
An obsessive artist, Winogand would shoot hundreds of pictures each day and at his untimely death left behind a whopping 6,600 unreviewed rolls of film! The show features an array of previously unpublished images and some personal artifacts. If you're in town, we highly recommend a visit.
