Winogrand is one of the celebrated names in photography, specifically street photography. A prolific shooter, he left tens of thousands of unpublished photographs and about 2,500 rolls of undeveloped film. His famous saying “I photograph to see what the world looks like in photographs” is the subject of this presentation by Ian Bogost. He says “My short talk from the Third Object-Oriented Ontology Symposium (Sept 14, The New School), on the photography of Garry Winogrand. I had to miss the symposium because I was in China, so I submitted this short video instead of giving a presentation in person.”
Fair warning, Winogrand is a complex photographer and this philosophical discourse on his work kicks it up a notch. The combination of the two makes the speech even more complex, you may need to watch it several times (as I have) to get the speaker’s message. An interesting presentation, carefully considered and presented.
