A Major Garry Winogrand Documentary Is In The Works, To Be Released in 2017
By Mason Resnick
Promising "amazing eye candy on the big screen," work has begun on a feature-length documentary film about master photographer Garry Winogrand, whose groundbreaking photos from the 60s and 70s have influenced generations of street photographers and photojournalists.
Directed by Shasha Waters Freyer, the movie Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable is reported by RealScreen.com to be in production with a release date expected in early 2017.
The documentary, which is being billed as "the most comprehensive study of Winogrand's work" will present a biography of Winogrand based on his media appearances, letters, audio cassette recordings, and never-before-seen 8mm film footage of his family and New York City. Interviews with Leo Rubenfein, Todd Papageorge and others will be included.
