While many of the photos have never been published before, the real impact of the book is the effect of the collection it contains. All the photographs in the book are from the continuing body of work Winogrand did out in the city streets. Seeing the work assembeled like this points out the incredible ability he had to react to events which happened far faster than the conscious mind could comprehend.
This collection also illustrates the pure delight Garry Winogrand found in his subject matter. There is no condecension for the subjects lifestyle, no laughing at the situations they willingly place themselves into. What we come to appreciate is the pure joy and amazement Garry found that so many events and emotions can co-exist in such fleeting moments of time.
This is a book I will spend many many hours enjoying.
