American street photographer Garry Winogrand (New York, 1928-1984) has been recognized, along with Diane Arbus and Lee Friedlander, as one of the fundamental figures in the renewal of documentary photography.
In his beginnings, Winogrand worked in such popular magazines as Life, Look or Sports Illustrated, but he would soon abandon photojournalism to devote himself to a new photographic culture linked to the world of art . From 1955 he traveled throughout much of the North American geography with the desire to collect the demonstrations and the pacifist and countercultural movements of the sixties, derived from the Vietnam War, or the missile crisis, reflecting in his photographs a feeling of national disintegration.
His way of photographing, almost compulsively, reflects the chaos and vitality of North American society for three decades . His extensive work, carried out among the urban flow, presents a reality that is shown as it is, without moral judgments, as if it were a catalog of everyday life.
