Garry Winogrand Life

Garry Winogrand (14 January 1928 – 19 March 1984) was an American street photographer from Bronx, New York, known for his depictions of American life and its social problems in the mid-20th century.

Winogrand spent four years as a photographer in California, Texas, and elsewhere. He received three Guggenheim Fellowships to work on personal projects, a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, and four books throughout his lifetime.

He was one of three photographers included in the influential New Documents exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1967 and 1988, and 1988.

He supported himself by working as a freelance photojournalist and advertising photographer in the 1950s and 1960s, and taught photography in the 1970s.

Winogrand was dubbed the central photographer of his generation by photography magazines such as Popular Photography, Eros, Contemporary Photographer, and Photography Annual.

"He characterized street photography as an attitude rather than a style in the 1960s and 1970s, and it has labored in his shadow ever since," critic Sean O'Hagan wrote in The Guardian in 2014. "For those of us interested in street photography," Phil Coomes wrote for BBC News in 2013, "Garry Winogrand, whose photographs of New York in the 1960s are a photographic lesson in every frame." "Winogrand's late film at the time of his death was undeveloped, with about 2,500 rolls of undeveloped film, 6,500 rolls of wire, but not proofed exposures, and about 3,000 rolls only realized as long as contact sheets were produced."

Early life and education

Abraham and Bertha, Winogrand's parents, emigrated to the United States from Budapest and Warsaw. Garry and his sister Stella grew up in a predominantly Jewish working-class neighborhood of Bronx, New York, where his father, a leather worker in the garment industry, and his mother made neckties for piecemeal work.

Winogrand debuted in 1946 and joined the United States Army Air Force in high school. He returned to New York in 1947 and studied painting and photography at Columbia University, which was also in New York in 1948. In 1951, he attended a photojournalism class taught by Alexey Brodovitch at The New School for Social Research in New York.

Personal life

In 1952, Winogrand married Adrienne Lubeau. They had two children, Laurie in 1956 and Ethan in 1958. They married in 1963 and divorced in 1966.

Lubeau once told photography curator Trudy Wilner Stack, "being married to Garry was like being married to a camera." "Colleagues, students, and families" all talk about an "almost obsessive picture-taking device.

Judy Teller, Winogrand's second wife, married him in 1967. They lived together until 1969.

He married Eileen Adele Hale, with whom he had a daughter, Melissa. They were married until his death in 1984.


Garry Winogrand Career


In the 1950s and 1960s, Winogrand worked as a freelance photojournalist and advertising photographer. He worked with the PIX Publishing company in Manhattan from 1952 to 1954, as well as Brackman Associates from 1954.

In the 1955 The Family of Man exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, winogrand's beach scene of a man playful lifting a woman above the waves was among the world's largest tourist attractions, with a total number of 9 million visitors. In 1959, his first solo exhibition at the Image Gallery in New York was held. In 1963, he was in Five Unrelated Photographers, then at MoMA in New York, as well as Minor White, George Krause, Jerome Liebling, and Ken Heyman.

He photographed in New York City in the 1960s, along with fellow contemporaries Lee Friedlander and Diane Arbus.

Winogrand received a Guggenheim Fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation in 1964 to travel "for photographic studies of American life."

Friedlander, Duane Michals, Bruce Davidson, Bruce Davidson, and Danny Lyon opened an exhibition entitled Towards a Social Landscape in Rochester, New York, curated by Nathan Lyons in 1966. In 1967, his work was included in the "influential" New Documents exhibition at MoMA in New York, curated by John Szarkowski.

His photographs of the Bronx Zoo and the Coney Island Aquarium were included in his first book The Animals (1969), which explores human-animal relationships. Many of these images were taken when he was a divorced father taking his young children to the zoo for amusement.

Through the then new phenomenon of events designed specifically for the mass media, he was given his second Guggenheim Fellowship in 1969 to continue investigating "the effect of the media on events." He photographed at public events from 1969 to 1976, producing 6,500 prints for Papageorge, who then selected for his solo exhibition at MoMA (1977).

Windogrand's high-flying reputation suffered in 1975. He produced Women Are Beautiful, a much-anticipated photo book that delves into his fascination with the female form during the feminist movement. "The bulk of Winogrand's photographs are of women in either vulgar or insecure positions and they are presumed to be unknown to them," one critic says. "This candid approach adds to the sense of separation between the observer and the object of interest, which leads to awkwardness in the images themselves."

He supported himself in the 1970s by teaching, first in New York. He went to Chicago in 1971 and taught photography at the Illinois Institute of Design, 1971 to 1972. He came from Texas in 1973 and taught in the Photography Program at the University of Texas at Austin, Texas, from 1973 to 1978. In 1978, he moved to Los Angeles.

He traveled around the southern and western United States in 1979, using his third Guggenheim Fellowship to study the social problems of his time.

At the Fort Worth Fat Stock Show and Rodeo, photographer Stock Photographs (1980) portrayed "people in relation to each other and their show animals."

Szarkowski, the MoMA's Director of Photography, became an editor and reviewer of Winogrand's work.
