contact sheet and contacts
by Garry Winogrand
Photography doesn’t show reality.
Photography shows reflected reality.
Photography shows what you have in mind.
This contact sheet shows what Winogrand was looking for.
He decided on a certain form, he knew what he wanted to express.
Then he was standing there,
shooting away, trying to get a hold on the uncontrollable.
Formalizing those fleeting everyday moments.
