Women are Beautiful

Share:

Women are Beautiful is perhaps the most hotly-debated, as well as best-known series by legendary Street photographer Garry Winogrand (1928-1984).

The compilation of 85 photographs from the sixties and seventies captures an era of great social transition. After the war, women were exercising their new, hard-earned liberties – drastically changing their attitudes and self image.

Winogrand’s series is a document of social change taking shape in public everyday life. Following the women through the streets of Manhattan and joining them at high society parties, Winogrand’s camera observes how they occupy public spaces with self-confident grace, and how social transformation manifests in their behaviour and body language.

Although the series depicts women as principal agents of change, they remain subjected to the male gaze of a brilliant image hunter.
