Photographer: Garry Winogrand – Women Are Beautiful

One of my favorite photo exhibitions I’ve seen was of Garry Winogrand’s “Women are Beautiful” at the Denver Art Museum in 2012. I’d always loved Winogrand’s street photography, but had never seen many images from this collection. (Probably because the book costs hundreds of dollars.) These photographs of young (white) women are fun, awkward, and always interesting. They’re also provocative and exploitative — and often say as much about the men in the images as they do the women. Looking at them in 2014, though, they’re socially relevant as a documentation of the changing of the role of women through the 60s into the 70s.
