    Garry Winogrand

    This was a link I saw on the Online Photographer blog. I've always admired Winogrand's work, and found this short film interesting

    The idea of seeing something, the way the camera sees it... great stuff.

    Gosh that was good! I'm going to have to watch it again, several times. Thanks a bunch Suzanne.

    Did anyone else catch that those contact prints were done on 11x14 paper?

    Thanks Suzanne. Gary Winogrand was my inspiration for a project in photo school. I loved his "Arrivals and Departures" and "Figments from the real world". Great video...

    Yeah, I love the cavalier way he handled his negs, barehanded. I guess he just cleaned the ones that he really printed.

    That was great! His philosophy certainly gives me pause, but I have a hard time arguing with the imagery...

    i love that video. and i love the way he sees
    the world. i don't feel so bad with the handful
    of film or 1/2 box of sheet film i have to process,
    a drawer full ( i think i remember reading there were thousands?
    of rolls of film unprocessed after he passed away ) to process
    is good stuff <g> and a camera that is used so much
    you can see the sprocket holes on the pressure plate is pretty impressive

    you can see it cameraquest.com if you search for garry winogrand ...

    thanks suzanne

    Interesting video, Suzanne. Lots of seemingly "throw away" comments that bear further thought - e.g. "taking a photograph of something changes it" and, " a photograph is mute - it has no narrative ability"....interesting in so far as thinking about how far, in what ways these statements are true...
    Am coming back for another look at this one later!

    And this little nugget... you have to be willing to accept failure with every frame.

    The other day at the Rangefinder forum there was a post by a guy who was a student of Winogrand's at the University in Austin in the '70s. He has put together a 20 page document/memoir of what it was like in the class, anecdotes etc. Also plenty of photos that he took in the classroom & on excursions. You go to his website & then download it as a pdf. Sorry I don't have the link but should be easy to find via the other forum.
