Garry Winogrand & Weegee

Two photographers who came up in the general group discussions. Garry Winogrand who was another street photographer who took many photographs of people of guard in nightclubs. There is an interesting page about him on Wikipedia and a handfull of images on another site.

One of the books that was posted throuh Simon’s letter box was of Weegee’s work. Weegee was a New York photographer who listened to the police radio and tried to be the firstphotographer to arrive at a crime scene. He also captured people out and about and off guard in the evenings.  Another useful Wikipedia page with a link to another site with more images.
