Description

Garry Winogrand may be the foremost chronicler of post-World War II America. His photographs — from the streets of New York to the expanses of Texas and the heart of Hollywood — provide a rich and complex portrait of a nation in transition. Sasha Waters Freyer’s gorgeous and lively look at the man and his work uses still images, home movie footage, and revelatory recently discovered audio recordings to illustrate why many consider Winogrand to be the central photographer of his generation, but doesn’t shy away from the thornier aspects of his life and career.

"This is a film primarily about photography, one that explores Garry Winogrand’s tremendous contributions to the art form and his lasting influence on how we think of the medium today. But it is also a film that, I hope, explores and explodes the cliché of the undomesticated, self-destructive genius—one who is fundamentally unsuited to family life. . . Winogrand was an artist whose rise and fall—from the 1950s to the mid-1980s—in acclaim mirrors not only that of American power and credibility in the second half of the 20th century, but also a vision of American masculinity whose limitations, toxicity, and inheritance we still struggle, culturally, to comprehend." – Sasha Waters Freyer
