Watch The Master At Work
Garry Winogrand is considered by many to be the greatest street photographer of the 20th century. There’s a wonderful story by Mason Resnick who recounts the workshop in which he studied with Winogrand for a few weeks back in the mid 1970s. My favorite quote from the story? When asked if he felt bad about missing pictures while reloading film, Winogrand quipped, "There are no pictures when I reload." You can even see the master in action, watch him work and diagnose his great photographs in a wonderful video on YouTube. This video is well worth a look simply for the glimpse of this great photographer while he walks the streets of New York.
