Description

Winogrand (1928–1984) is famous for his black and white snapshots of midcentury New York. His lush color photography of the same subjects—commuters, teens, high society, and everything in-between—is more obscure, in large part because it hasn’t been exhibited significantly since 1967. (That year he included 80 color images in MoMA’s “New Documents” exhibition, which were displayed in a slide projector. However, the projector broke and wasn’t replaced, meaning few if any visitors saw the color photographs even then.) Now the Brooklyn Museum is putting on the first ever dedicated exhibition of Winogrand’s color photography, with more than 450 images displayed as slide projections.
