Gary Winogrand, once coined, “the central photographer of his generation” by John Szarkowski, the former director of photography of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, was a Jewish Bronx-born photographer and one of the pioneers of what is now known as street photography.

Winogrand is mostly known for his portrayal of the diversity of American life, from shooting the Bronx zoo and Coney Island in the sixties to the bohemian lifestyle of our own Venice Beach in the eighties.
