Geoff Dyer and Sasha Waters Freyer discuss the work of Garry Winogrand at the Austin Public Library, Austin, Texas

May 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Garry Winogrand was one of the most important photographers of the 1960’s and 1970’s, as well as one of the world’s foremost street photographers whose images capture a bygone era: the New York of Mad Men and the early years of the Women’s Movement, the birth of American suburbs, and the glamour and alienation of Hollywood. His “snapshot aesthetic,” once derided by critics, is now the universal language of contemporary image making.

Join us for a presentation and discussion of Winogrand’s life and work that will include author Geoff Dyer discussing a selection of Winogrand photographs based on passages from his recently published book The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand, and Sasha Waters Freyer presenting excerpts from her award-winning documentary Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable.
