photographer of the week: Gary Winograd

Interesting photo isn't it? The baby Chimpanzees being carried like well, their own children? This was taken in 1967, I need to find out the story behind this photo.

Garry Winograd is considered to be one of the American masters of photography, right up next to Richard Avedon. He liked movement, wide angle lenses, and Leica cameras.

I liked this shot, the baby, the bike in the driveway, rolling clouds behind the mountains. This was taken in New Mexico.

Garry Winogrand died of cancer at age 56 in 1984 and left over 2,500 rolls of undeveloped film, 6,500 rolls 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.
