Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable ★★★

Garry Winogrand epitomized mid-late 20th century photo journalism. His obsessive shooting of street scenes in his native New York and later in Texas and Southern California, led to a vast body of interesting people tableaux (over a million 35mm photos taken, many never developed until after his death in 1983.) This documentary does a fine job of showing off his work, mainly in chronological order. But filmed footage of the man during his life was scant; and interviews with his wives and analyses of his work by various museum officials and art experts lacked depth. I'll admit that his vast body of photos are interesting and perhaps even important as a distillation of urban Americana during his time; but there are other photographers from that period whose output speaks more to me as works of art.
