Garry Winogrand

  • Art, Photography

Time Out says

Legend has it that Garry Winogrand went out every day with his Leica under his arm, along with a wide angle lens and ten rolls of Tri-X. No wonder they called him 'the prince of the streets'. But he didn't want to take photos everyone else was taking: he was looking for his own frame (sometimes 'crooked', nonlinear, sometimes with a wonderful angle). It was the 1950s and, doing his own thing led him to become the father of street photography, the great portraitist of New York from then until the 1980s.

This retrospective at the Mapfre Foundation is one of the most anticipated of the year: Winogrand transports us to the streets of the USA (New York, Texas, California ...) in the second half of last century. We want to be there. Among those women who walk together with their 1960s sixties look (those hairstyles, those miniskirts!) in Los Angeles; at that lake in Austin with the skinny dipper; among those girls gossiping (wonderfully) on a bench in the park. And we are.
