The Denver Art Museum features Garry Winogrand Photographs From the Collection
Denver, Colorado.- The Denver Art Museum is proud to present “Garry Winogrand: Women are Beautiful”, on view at the museum through July 8th. The exhibition features a selection of 50 photographs from the museum’s permanent collection, culled from the hundreds that Garry Winogrand took of women on the street, a selection of which were published in the 1975 book Women are Beautiful. Garry Winogrand was born on January 14th 1928 in New York. Winogrand grew up in the then predominantly Jewish working-class area of the Bronx, New York, where his father, Abraham, was a leather worker, and his mother, Bertha, made neckties for piecemeal work. Winogrand studied painting at City College of New York and painting and photography at Columbia University in New York City in 1948. He also attended a photojournalism class taught by Alexey Brodovich at The New School for Social Research in New York City in 1951. In the early 1960s Winogrand photographed on the streets of New York City alongside Joel Meyerowitz, Lee Friedlander, Tod Papageorge and Diane Arbus.
