Tod Papageorge began to photograph in 1962, during his last semester as a student in literature at the University of New Hampshire. By 1966 he had moved to New York City and been accepted into a small circle of photographer/artists, including Garry Winogrand, who were engaged in transforming the then-dominant documentary "style" of journalistic photography into a vigorous, poetic form. Papageorge's work is the subject of several monographs, and a selection of his writings on photography, Core Curriculum — which includes his seminal essay on Winogrand, "Public Relations: The Photographs of Garry Winogrand" — was published in 2011. He has been the Walker Evans Professor of Photography at the Yale School of Art since 1979.
