This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features photographer and essayist Leo Rubinfiendiscussing the Garry Winogrand retrospective he has curated for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The show opens this weekend!
Among the pictures Rubinfien discusses with host Tyler Green is Winogrand’s many zoo pictures, such as this 1963 photograph.
Winogrand’s pictures, typically taken with a hand-held camera, are classics of the street-photography genre that dominated American photography in the 1950s and ’60s. They captured American prosperity, the flight to the suburbs, the tumult of the Vietnam era and the retreat of Americans into a kind of self-interested hedonism in the 1970s and early ’80s.

The Daily Grind - Official Movie Trailer
Perry and Stanley are your typical espresso cart owners with one exception. They’ve just found the most elusive roaster in the business who can supply the beans that will give them celebrity status in the caffeinated world. Now all they need to seal the deal is navigate a city teeming with latté junkies, homicidal motorists, rival espresso cart factions, an apple cider peddler with a chip on his shoulder, and the infamous maple scone lady. The odds are stacked against them, but victory is on the horizon, and if the ravenous patrons of “Full Sack Jack” want to keep their caffeine flowing, they better hope our hapless heroes can survive the Daily Grind.
