Described as a "poet," an "athlete," or a "philosopher" of photography, Garry Winogrand harnessed the serendipity of the streets to capture the American 1960s and '70s. His Leica M4 snapped spontaneous images of everyday people while observing themes of cultural upheaval, political disillusionment, intimacy and alienation. Once derided by the critics, Winogrand's "snapshot aesthetic" is now a universal language of contemporary image making. "Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable" is the first cinematic treatment of Winogrand's work. Contemporary and archival interviews with Jay Maisel, Tod Papageorge, Matthew Weiner, and more attest to Winogrand's indisputable influence as artist and chronicler of culture, and his streetwise perspective indebted to an upbringing in New York City.
Following the film, director Sasha Waters Freyer will be in conversation with SFMOMA associate curator of photography Erin O'Toole, who is also interviewed in the film. The screening and conversation are presented in conjunction with the exhibition 'Michael Jang's California,' which situates his raw and exuberant street photography amongst works by his major influences Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand from the McEvoy Family Collection.
Sasha Waters Freyer makes non-fiction films about outsiders, misfits and everyday radicals. Her first feature film Raising Appalachia (2003), screened globally on ITVS. Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable received the Special Jury Prize at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival. Waters Freyer is Chair of the Department of Photography & Film at Virginia Commonwealth University. She lives in Richmond, VA.
Erin O'Toole is the Baker Street Foundation associate curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. O'Toole holds a B.A. from UC Santa Cruz, an M.A. from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a Ph.D. from the University of Arizona.
