Description

Winogrand 1964 gives cohesive form to Garry Winogrand's America in 195 photographs made in a single year, the majority previously unpublished. Taken together, these images depict the country at a cultural crossroads, a superpower increasingly linked by mass consumerism and television, but still a naive and quirky frontier nation. A year after the assassination of JFK, Winogrand summons the national mood as the Vietnam War begins and the Civil Rights movement inspires both race riots and significant legislation. In an unparalleled, newly researched group of pictures, the photographer most often associated with the sixties travels the United States with his characteristic appetite for life and eye for humor - shooting on the beach, at state fairs and stock shows, tourist attractions and sporting events - creating what Tod Papageorge deemed "the most accessible body of pictures he ever made." In the year of Dr. Strangelove and the New York World's Fair, Winogrand searches for meaning in his work and the world it reflects. "I look at the pictures I have done up to now," he wrote in 1963, "and they make me feel that who we are and what we feel and what is to become of us just doesn't matter. ...I cannot accept my conclusions, and so I must continue this photographic investigation further and deeper."
