Garry Winogrand
[Photographer, b. 1928, New York, d. 1984, Tijuana, Mexico.]

 There is no special way a photograph should look. 
 There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described. 
 I like to work in that area where content almost overwhelms form. 
 Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame. When you put four edges around some facts, you change those facts. 
 You know why your pictures are no fucking good? Because they don’t describe the chaos of life. (Quoted by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia) 
 I photograph to see what things look like photographed. 
 Every photograph is a battle of form versus content. The good ones are on the border of failure. 
 Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed.
