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.
