Garry Winogrand’s Life in Color

Garry Winogrand’s Life in Color

Garry Winogrand’s colour photographs were first unveiled at the New Document exhibition at MoMA in 1967. However, a few days later, the projector caught fire and Winogrand’s color images were never seen again—until now. Fifty-two years after New Document and thirty-five years after Winogrand’s death, Drew Sawyer, the newly appointed curator of the Brooklyn Museum, decided it was time to rediscover Winogrand’s color photographs. The exhibition Garry Winogrand: Color is on view at the Brooklyn Museum in New York until December 8.

Blue Sky, Sunshine, White Sand by the Mile

“I wasn’t trying to be like the guy who photographed my Bar Mitzvah, someone who comes in to please everyone.

Matt Eich: “I Don't Dress Loud, I Don't Walk Loud, I Don't Talk Loud”

Matt Eich: “I Don’t Dress Loud, I Don’t Walk Loud, I Don’t Talk Loud”

Among many other gifts, Matt Eich has been blessed with a long attention span: his widely praised look at a struggling community in rural Ohio began more than 13 years ago, and he’s been returning to Baptist Town—a Mississippi neighborhood wracked by poverty and violence—for seven years. The result of his ongoing focus? Intimate, seductively subtle stories that sometimes feel like memory itself. Eich’s eye for moments loaded with emotion, combined with a considered approach to the role—and limits—of documentary photography, has led to frequent assignments from the likes of the New York Times Magazine, Outside, Time, and National Geographic, among others.
