More from Garry.
I have seen many of the images from Winogrand’s “Women are Beautiful.” Though, usually only reproduced in “The Man in the Crowd” or “1964.” I recently got a hold of the book itself for the first time. Amazing to see so many Winogrand photos I’ve never seen before.
Here is a few sentences from the man himself:
"Whenever I’ve seen an attractive woman, I’ve done my best to photograph her. I don’t know if all the women in the photographs are beautiful, but I do know that the women are beautiful in the photographs.
By the term ‘attractive woman,’ I mean a woman I react to, positively. What do I react to in a woman? I do not mean as a man getting to know a woman but as a photographer photographing…”
