    Unless I missed it, I haven't seen Garry Winogrand's name. An acquired taste, perhaps?

    Nevertheless, he has got to rank up there somewhere in terms of sheer volume of work. I think that the Center for Creative Photography is still trying to sort through the thousands (literally!) of rolls of film left when he "shuffled off [his] mortal coil".

    He might win some kind of a mention for the record number of exposures made by a (relatively) famous photographer!

    I thought they developed them all and the result was the Szarkowski-edited "Figments from the Real World", which he indicated had a very low image "hit" rate for the volume of film shot.

    I don't have a link handy, but I've seen some references indicating Winogrand got a motor drive for his Leica in his later years, which some speculate had a negative effect on his image quality (eg, it made it too easy to "pray and spray", as it were).
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Mabman,
    I think that you are correct that they did develop all of Winogrand's film. I read of a symposium/exhibit held at the Center for Creative Photography (Tucson) in late 2001/early 2002 where they explored Winogrand's work, including his last unedited (by Winogrand) work. There apparently was some debate about whether or not to exhibit photos taken by a deceased photographer that the photographer had no chance to proof/edit. (I say, bring 'em on -- no use in hiding potentially great photos in a store room somewhere.)

    There was indeed some discussion of the diminishing quality of Winogrand's late work. But others thought that he was trying to push past his "legacy" work into new areas to "solve new photography problems" as Winogrand would say.

    Anyway, I like the guy's work. I've got to feel admiration for anyone who was as obsessive about exposing film as Winogrand. He seemed to live for shooting pictures.

    I read an interesting interview with the guy in Austin Tx, Jerry Sullivan, who maintained Winogrand's Leicas while Winogrand was at the University of Texas. According to Sullivan, Winogrand beat the hell out of his Leicas -- not literally, but Winogrand "rode them hard". I guess that anyone who shot at many photos as Winogrand probably used up a lot of equipment in the process!

    Anyway, those of you who have not already, check out Winogrand's work -- I think that you'll agree that he belongs up there with the masters... David
