Winogrand, Passion and 432,000 photos

Garry Winogrand didn’t just talk about being a street photographer. He didn’t dream about it while his camera grew old in his bag. Winogrand was a street photographer – and a damn good one. Some notable examples…

You’ll find a nice article about him here. From the article…

“Garry Winogrand died of cancer at age 56 in 1984 and left over 2,500 rolls of undeveloped film, 6,500 rollso of processed film, 3,000 rolls of contact sheets that evidently hadn’t been looked at—a total of 12,000 rolls, or 432,000 photos Winogrand took but never saw.”

Wow. I guess the fella dug taking pictures.

Here are some photos of his last Leica

I hope mine looks like that someday.
