Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Yeh, he was different, lucky to have had him to document my world which I didn't seem to be able to do at the same time. I do like his non-photojournalist approach. And I like that he didn't conserve his film.

Saw this last week. Very good and inspiring doc. His ability to use a 28mm lens to its fullest was really inspiring. The density and complexity of his photos is really amazing, as was his color work which I'd like to see more of.

Dan,

I think that its only being shown in theaters in a few select markets. You may want to google the title of the movie and the Columbia SC and/or the names of any large cities within driving distance to see if its being shown near you.

If you're unable to see it a Theater it will be on PBS sometime next year.

I'm one of the lucky ones who bought this book when it was in print... Had I know I would bought 10 of them and made a good chunk of change...

Someone above said he used a 28mm lens. Some of his shots look like he didn't even use the viewfinder. Maybe like walking along with the camera in hand and shot from the waist. What do you think??

Of course some he was very careful to use the viewfinder:

Thanks for bringing this up here. I recall some sort of short documentary on him a few years back....possibly a piece that appeared on 60 mins or something...of all things. Googling that I found this with trailer.

Amen Brother Night!

the 28 shows a lot of "material" in the frame and more often than not some of it is moving around.

It's crazy the way he looks outside the obvious scene, brings that in and makes it work within the scene.

I used to not get him.His photographs are much more complex than someone like Henri Cartier Bresson and there are a lot of misses with the hits, probably due to the sheer volume of his production.

But when he nails it, he nails it.

If I haven't been shooting much and I go out with a 28mm, I often have too much empty space and pretty boring photos. You have to be on your game to fill the frame.

And his color work, I love. In the film he basically says the reason he didn't do more color is that he couldn't keep up with his output with color film. He could develop black and white faster and more cosistently and cheaper.

Whatever he did shoot though, man. I don't know if I just love the look of color film from that era but it's just really amazing.

Pentax i.e. Ricoh ought to dedicate the GR to the Winogrand Way of Seeing.

Anyone can change out a 28mm on an M if they’re uncomfortable with or unwilling to submit themselves to the discipline of that FOV. But the GR has always been a tool for teaching the 28mm way.

I don't think New York in the 70's was a more friendly place than it is today. Quite the opposite.

With everyone shooting photos all the time with their phones, if anything people are less conscious of being photographed.

Who knows Winogrand might use a phone today, approximately same field of view. He didn't seem too obsessed with equipment, he just used the hell out of Leica he had.
