Garry Winogrand

For his book 'The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand' Geoff Dyer has selected 100 photographs by Winogrand and written a page long essay about each one. It's a simple but extremely effective format that Dyer borrows from 'Atget' by John Szarkowski.

Dyer's essays are the perfect accompaniment to the photos that they dissect; playful, irreverent and full of interesting observations. They force the reader to fully engage with each image and study it's details, something it's so easy not to do when flicking through a book of photographs.
