Artist. Iconoclast. Man of his time. Garry Winogrand was the epic photographer of 20th century American life. Decades before digital technology transformed how we make and see pictures, American photographer Garry Winogrand made hundreds of thousands of them with his 35mm Leica, creating an encyclopedic portrait of America from the late 1950s to the early 1980s. When he died suddenly at age 56 in 1984, Winogrand left behind more than 10,000 rolls of film - more than a quarter of a million pictures! These images, as well as hours of never before seen 8mm films, capture a bygone era.
Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable
is the first cinematic survey of that legacy. The film tells the story of an artist whose rise and fall was — like America's in the late decades of the 20th century — larger-than-life, full of contradictions, and totally unresolved. The film also uses newly discovered audio cassette
tapes of private conversations between Winogrand and photographer Jay Maisel recorded in 1977.
Join us as the film's director Sasha Waters Freyer introduces the film and leads a talkback session afterwards.
