Widely acknowledged as one of the most im portant photographers of the 20th century\, Garry Winogrand (1928-1984) cap tured moments of everyday American life in the postwar era\, producing an e xpansive picture of a nation rich with possibility yet threatening to spin out of control. He did much of his best-known work in New York in the 1960s \, becoming a major voice of that tumultuous decade. But he also roamed wid ely around the United States\, from California and Texas to Miami and Chica go. He photographed the rich and powerful and everyday strangers on the str eet\; antiwar protesters and politicians\; airports and zoos. In many of th ese pictures\, humor and visual energy are the flip sides of an anxious ins tability. As photographer and guest curator Leo Rubinfien says\, "The hope and buoyancy of middle-class life in postwar America is half of the emotion al heart of Winogrand's work. The other half is a sense of undoing."

\n

Whe n he died suddenly at age 56\, Winogrand left behind thousands of rolls of exposed but undeveloped film and unedited contact sheets — some 250\,000 fr ames in total. Nearly 100 of these pictures have been printed for the first time for this long-awaited retrospective of his work. By presenting such a rchival discoveries alongside celebrated pictures\, Garry Winogrand reframes a career that was\, like the artist's America\, both epic and un resolved. This exhibition has been jointly organized by SFMOMA and the Nati onal Gallery of Art in Washington\, and will travel to the Metropolitan Mus eum of Art in New York\, Jeu de Paume in Paris\, and Fundación MAPFRE in Ma drid.

This retros pective\, organized by SFMOMA under the direction of photographer and write r Leo Rubinfien\, is the first major touring exhibition and catalogue in 25 years dedicated to the work of Garry Winogrand (1928-1984 ). Despite being widely recognized as one of the preeminent American photog raphers of the 20th century\, Winogrand has to date been inadequately publi shed and incompletely explored by critics and art historians. Postponing th e editing of his prodigious body of work and then coming abruptly to the en d of his life\, he completed only five modest books\, which contain just a fraction of his total work and merely suggest his great importance to the h istory of photography. The curatorial research undertaken for this project has made possible the first exhibition and catalogue that reveal to the pub lic the full breadth of Winogrand's oeuvre — a jubilant\, epic portrait of America that is Whitmanesque in its ambition to encompass the whole of the nation's life. One of the principal artists in any medium of the eruptive 1 960s\, Winogrand combines a sense of the hope and buoyancy of American life after World War II with a powerful anxiety\, presenting America shining wi th possibility while also threatening to spin out of control.
