Garry Winogrand died suddenly at age 56. He left behind him 6,500 undeveloped rolls of film. Although Winogrand is already considered one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, his work and influence will remain incomplete as long as there remains undeveloped and unprinted film in his archives. The first retrospective of his work at the Musée Jeu de Paume in Paris is exhibiting, for the first time, a (somewhat uneven) selection of hundreds of his photographs. This is a powerful reflection on the United States, torn between fervent optimism and ideological, economic upheaval.
The catalogue accompanying this major exhibition, published by Flammarion, offers an insightful look into the postwar “American way of life,” New York in the 1950s to the final pictures from the early 1980s.
