“You could say that I am a student of photography,” he said, “and I am; but really I’m a student of America.” American street photographer Garry Winogrand gets his own retrospective in the best Paris photograph museum, Le Jeu de Paume, located inside the Jardins des Tuileries. Winogrand is famous for his iconic photographs of New York and American life from the 1950s, just after World War II, through the early 1980s.
This exhibition reveals pictures taken by the artist that have been discovered after his death in 1984 (half of the photos have never been exhibited before). A work that is about to make the guy born in the Bronx even more famous.
The exhibition is divided into three parts: Down from the Bronx, A Student of America, Boom and Bust.
