Movie Info

Described as a "poet," an "athlete," or a "philosopher" of photography, Garry Winogrand harnessed the serendipity of the streets to capture the American 1960s and '70s. His Leica M4 snapped spontaneous images of everyday people, from the Mad Men era of New York to the early years of the Women's Movement to post-Golden Age Hollywood, all while observing themes of cultural upheaval, political disillusionment, intimacy and alienation. Once derided by the critics, Winogrand's "snapshot aesthetic" is now the universal language of contemporary image making. Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable is the first cinematic treatment of Winogrand's work, including selections from the thousands of rolls of film still undeveloped upon his unexpected death in 1984. Interviews with Tod Papageorge, Matthew Weiner and more attest to Winogrand's indisputable influence, both as artist and chronicler of culture, while archived conversations with Jay Maisel highlight the gruff, streetwise perspective of "a city hick from the Bronx." In the tradition of Robert Frank and Henri Cartier-Bresson, Winogrand's candid, psychological style transports us to a bygone world, one where image lacked the editing and control possible today.

Critic Reviews for Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (10)

He never gave up, never stopped shooting. It was a well-lived life because he apparently discovered that it mattered after all.

The documentary's heart, soul, and digestive system is the cascade of photographs that Freyer keeps coming. Many are familiar, and thus welcome. Many more are not, and thus even more so.

A balanced and deeply satisfying documentary assessment of his work...

October 11, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Both a fine introduction for those who don't know the work and a thoughtful examination of the issues surrounding him for those who do.

Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable is an elegant, tender ode to Winogrand, but it's no hagiography.

October 3, 2018 | Full Review…

All Things Are Photographable isn't contemptuous of Winogrand's boorishness; any honest reflection of his life and work has to deal with the unvarnished whole of both, as he always did.
