Before street-style photography became a major component of both fashion and art, Garry Winogrand turned his surroundings -- the streets -- and the social issues of his time into artistic images. Winogrand pioneered the "snapshot aesthetic" within the documentary photography realm, capturing a unique perspective of everday life. Although Winogrand was critiqued at times for seemingly exploiting women in his work, a new retrospective of 68 photographs entitled Winogrand's Women Are Beautiful -- based on his 1975 photo book of the same name -- celebrates, rather than criticizes, his various images of women. The images candidly capture women in everyday life, transforming their daily duties -- from parties to protests -- into beautiful works of art. Winogrand wrote in his book, “Whenever I’ve seen an attractive woman, I’ve done my best to photograph her. I don’t know if all the women in the photographs are beautiful, but I do know that the women are beautiful in the photographs. By the term ‘attractive woman,’ I mean a woman I react to, positively… I do not mean as a man getting to know a woman, but as a photographer photographing.” The exhibit opens Saturday, August 8th, at the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusettes, and runs through November 10th.
