“We did not love life”. Winogrand made the photographs in this book in spite of this self-assessment. A loving spirit charges and elevates image after image, traversing an emotional circuit that ranges from empathy to affection to outright exhilaration, spanning two decades of work made mainly in broad daylight, on the street, on the beach, in colour.
Garry Winogrand is best known for his spontaneous and energetic black and white street photography. What is less well known is that Winogrand also shot more than 45,000 colour slides between the early 1950s and the late 1960s. These photographs were often taken between assignments, as the photographer, working on his own, developed and refined an approach to his medium that was increasingly open, independent and radical. He usually photographed with two cameras strapped around his neck, one loaded with colour film, the other with black and white film.

Winogrand Colour presents 150 photographs selected from the archives of the Center for Creative Photography by American director Michael Almereyda and former Museum of Modern Art curator Susan Kismaric. It is the first monograph devoted to the artist’s rarely seen colour works.
