GARRY WINOGRAND @ SFMOMA

Garry Winogrand and his camera roamed the streets of post-war America and together they created portraits of Americans in their everyday weirdness and glory. After combing through thousands of undeveloped film rolls, the San Francisco MOMA put together a retrospective of Winogrand’s work, with about one hundred never before seen photographs.

At first, Winogrand didn’t wander too far from his native Bronx, but his later photos show far-away Florida, Texas and California. Taken mostly from eye-level and with a sidelong glance, Winogrand turned parades, democratic rallies, and the plain old streets into a site for spectacle and gritty wonder. Some of the best photos capture a cacophony of bodies arranged in a fleeting, energetic composition: there are the criss crossed legs of girls on a hot day in Central Park, or revelers, frozen mid-dance, at a swanky anniversary party at the Metropolitan.
