Wow.

I really liked that it was more than a hagiography, that they included voices that criticized as well as praised, though respectfully.

All for a complicated fellow, hard to completely describe in a simple blurb or two...

On a lighter note, I wonder how many Leicas he helped sell...

That Leica 28mm is a beautiful lens, I wouldn't mind having one and a camera/finder (2) to go with it. And then a back up lens too.

Thinking about it, what I really liked in addition to the photos, is they put his work properly into the context of his life. What's been done to the man is that he's been put on a pedestal, and then attacked and critiqued because he wasn't perfect on a pedestal. They made him a straw man. I also think swarkovski did something he had no business doing when he had Winogrand's negs gone through, and then had the gall to find them wanting. He should have kept his mouth shut. Swarkovski was a parasite imo.

The bit near the end... without being too spoilery, I hope...
"Yeah, he slowed down a bit during this time..." and they show the 'first three shots' of each roll as he loads the camera... some of them show an extra set of small feet in the photo... others show the shadow of a small body on top of his...
He's shooting with his daughter along...

As someone who has shot while carrying a toddler on my shoulders, I can verify that it really does slow you down a lot...
And I can't imagine doing hardcore street photography with a kid on my shoulders... makes it hard to be "invisible..."

But yeah, if someone just dug through everything I've shot in the past 10 years and compared it to stacks of work I'd put together to show, yeah, it would be a lot worse...
I can't think of anyone whose total raw output isn't worse than their edited efforts...

The Brooklyn Museum is currently showing Winogrand's largely unknown color work:

https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/exhibitions/garry_winogrand

Recommended for those who will be in or near New York City.
