Garry Winogrand

Garry Winogrand is a 1960's photographer who did an important series about New York City street photography. After looking at his photogrpah, I realized that I'm trying to go for the same approach when it comes to street photography. Though i'm no Winogrand, I can see similarities in our work as in terms of composition, distance from stranger, and horizontal view of strangers. This photo stands out to me because there's so much going on and three men looking at the camera gives a strong, odd feeling to it. I read that Winogrand would have his lens' pre-focused and would photograph people without them knowing. He's a brilliant photographer and I look forward to reseaching more of his work.
