news release See an Award-Winning Documentary about Street Photographer Garry Winogrand at Akron Art Museum
Akron, Ohio—In a time when photography required the costly extra steps inherent in film processing, groundbreaking street photographer Garry Winogrand took hundreds of thousands of pictures with his 35mm Leica and created an encyclopedic portrait of America from the 1950s through the 1980s. The artist, whose snapshot aesthetic transformed photography, is featured in the award-winning documentary Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable, which tells Winogrand’s story using his own words and images. The Akron Art Museum will screen the film on Thursday, January 24, at 7:00 P.M. The screening is free for museum members and $10 for nonmembers.
Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable won the Special Jury Prize at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival and is the first cinematic treatment of the artist’s work. In addition to celebrated photographs that Winogrand published during his lifetime, the film contains selections from thousands of undeveloped rolls of film that the artist left behind after his death in 1984. The film also features interviews with Geoff Dyer, Tod Papageorge, Laurie Simmons and many others, along with original jazz compositions by Winogrand’s son, Ethan.
