Widely considered one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, Garry Winogrand became one of the principal voices of the eruptive 1960s, managing to capture the wide-ranging mood of America at that time — both hopeful after World War II and full of anxiety about the future — and he continued to produce extraordinary photographs of American life until his death in 1984. Despite his stature and influence, Winogrand's oeuvre has been vastly underresearched and underexplored. Garry Winogrand is the first major touring exhibition dedicated to his work in 25 years.
