Garry Winogrand

Garry Winogrand was another street photographer whose work my tutor suggested I take a look at.

He was from The Bronx, New York and lived from 1928 – 1984. His work was a post-war social commentary of many US states and was conducted in black and white film.

From the very few images I’ve seen, there’s a lot of movement in his shots and the use of diagonals adds depth and often draws the viewer away from the main subject matter which is usually (but not aways) centrally placed.  His work is good inspiration for me to try and catch movement in street
