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

 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. 
 I photograph to see what things look like photographed. 
 You know why your pictures are no fucking good? Because they don’t describe the chaos of life. (Quoted by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia) 
 Photography is not about the thing photographed. It is about how that thing looks photographed. 
 The photograph isn’t what was photographed. It’s something else. It’s a new fact. 
 What photograph isn’t a still life?
