Fantastic to see this news hit my inbox yesterday, that the first retrospective in nearly 25 years of Garry Winogrand’s work will open at SFMOMA on March 9th, 2013. The exhibition will then travel to DC, NYC, Paris & Madrid. Back when this site was active, there was plenty to say about Winogrand, and it’s great to see that there’s been a recent upsurge of interest in his work, and generally, in street photography.
Apparently, the exhibition is partially inspired by new scholarship of Winogrand’s archives:
“New curatorial research undertaken for this project has enabled the first thorough review of the prints and proof sheets from Winogrand’s complete working life, and will reveal to the public for the first time the full breadth of his art through more than 200 photographs. Roughly half of those have never been seen publicly; close to 100 have never before been printed.” from http://www.bloginity.com/2012/04/garry-winogrands-touring-exhibition/
I’m really looking forward to the catalog (and exhibition, if I make it out there) and especially to a new essay on the subject from Mr. Papageorge. Here’s my swing at the subject, “Reconsidering Winogrand” from the inaugural issue of “PUBLICATION” way back in 2009.
Update: NYT has published unseen work from the 1960 DNC, and is asking for help in id’ing some of the people included in the scenes.

A JPG Transcript of Jacques Derrida on Photography and Not Being Photographed
Since I started photographing, I've been fascinated by not photographing and the politics, problems, and peculiarities that surround what it means to make (or not make) a picture.

“Street Photography Now” Fails to Cite Sources
My copy of Street Photography Now arrived yesterday from Amazon and the book looks good; it's well-designed and the pictures pop. As I began to read the text (and rifle through the back, searching for a bibliography that I never found) I was surprised by how many quotes are ...
