I’m a big fan of Garry Winogrand.1) I consider his approach to photography one of the purest and honest. Not only his work is outstanding, but also his attitude towards photography it’s been the most inspiring and one of the few, true artistic approach.
The point with Winogrand is that the very photograph is somehow secondary, what really matters to him is observing how the (American) society has changed throughout the years.
He wasn’t interested in composition or beauty in a canonical way, what did really matter to him was the human element: behaviors, expressions, gestures.
