Yes a fascinating documentary. The excellent, good quality 8mm color film clips he shot was something completely new to me regarding his work.

I was completely unaware of Winogrand until I read about him on this website a few years ago. I think many, many who shot 35mm film back in that day can relate to his instinctual feeling about photography. His genius was, in a way, that he pursued this instinct relentlessly.

Two quotes from him encapsulate his motivations (in my view):

“I have a burning desire to see what things look like photographed by me.”

“I photograph to find out what something will look like photographed.”
