This is what happens when you run water through a 24hz sine wave.
This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features photographer and essayist Leo Rubinfien, who curated the Garry Winogrand retrospective opening this weekend at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Winogrand’s pictures, typically taken with a hand-held camera, are classics of the street-photography genre that dominated American photography in the 1950s and ’60s. They captured American prosperity, the flight to the suburbs, the tumult of the Vietnam era and the retreat of Americans into a kind of self-interested hedonism in the 1970s and early ’80s.
The exhibition, which was co-organized by the National Gallery of Art, includes more than 300 pictures; the Yale University Press-published catalogue that accompanies the show includes more than 400. The book also includes numerous essays on Winogrand’s career and influence, including a particularly excellent essay by Rubinfien.
Among the pictures Rubinfien and host Tyler Green discuss is Winogrand’s Forest Lawn, Los Angeles (1964, detail here), a great example of Winogrand’s interest in the suburbs and West.
