John Szarkowski opens this comprehensive overview of Gary Winogrand with an eloquent and important essay on the photographer's life and work. He describes the development of Winogrand's pictorial strategies during his years as a photojournalist, the increasing complexity of his motifs as he pursued more personal goals, and the challenge posed for other photographers by the powerful and distinctive authority of Winogrand's best work, 'with its manic sense of a life balanced somewhere between animal high spirits and an apprehension of moral disaster.' A lavish plate section follows, presenting Winogrand's photographs thematically under the titles Eisenhower Years, The Street, Women, The Zoo, On the Road, The Sixties, Etc, The Fort Worth Fat Stock Show and Rodeo, Airport and Unfinished Work. Many of the 179 works are published here for the first time, and the final section, Unfinished Work, includes twenty-five pictures chosen from the enormous body of work that Winogrand left unedited at the time of his death in 1984.
