Decades before digital technology transformed how we make and see pictures, American photographer Garry Winogrand made hundreds of thousands of them with his 35mm Leica, creating an encyclopedic portrait of America from the late 1950s to the early 1980s. When he died suddenly in 1984 at the age of 56, Winogrand left behind more than 10,000 rolls of film.
“Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable” is the first cinematic survey of that legacy. The film tells the story of an artist whose rise and fall was larger than life, full of contradictions and totally unresolved. The film also uses newly discovered audio cassette tapes of private conversations between Winogrand and photographer Jay Maisel from 1977.
The film’s director, Sasha Waters Freyer, will introduce the film and conduct a Q & A after the film.
