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

 I photograph to see what things look like photographed. 
 What photograph isn’t a still life? 
 I don’t have anything to say in any picture. But you do, from your experience, surmise something. You do give a photograph symbolic content, narrative content... But it’s nothing to worry about! 
 There is no special way a photograph should look. 
 Every photograph is a battle of form versus content. The good ones are on the border of failure. 
 The photograph isn’t what was photographed. It’s something else. It’s a new fact. 
 You see something happening and you bang away at it. Either you get what you saw or you get something else—and whichever is better you print. 
 I like to work in that area where content almost overwhelms form.
