taking it to the street
When I was a teen, long before I had any idea that I wanted to pursue photojournalism as a career, I saw a 30 minute tv show on world-renowned street photographer Garry Winogrand.
Winogrand would roam the streets of New York City, among other places, taking quick random pictures of whatever caught his fancy.
He loved the process of photography more than the actual photographs. When Winogrand died, he left behind 300,000 unedited images and 2500 undeveloped rolls of exposed film.
I love Winogrand’s work, especially his book 1964, which ironically was the year that I was born.
This afternoon, I got downtown a bit early so I spent a half an hour on Michigan Avenue doing what my blog says- shooting from the hip.
