The Street Phi­los­o­phy of Garry Wino­grand

The Week (US) - - Arts 25 - By Ge­off Dyer (Univ. of Texas, $60)

Ge­off Dyer makes an ideal guide to Garry Wino­grand’s pho­tog­ra­phy, said Jennifer Sza­lai in The New York Times. For this “vis­ually sump­tu­ous” vol­ume, the es­say­ist chose 100 of Wino­grand’s im­ages and wrote text that puts them in his­tor­i­cal con­text. Granted, “Dyer can make some dud calls.” But when­ever he lets him­self “get deeply, com­i­cally weird,” as he does in a giddy tan­gent on sun­bathing, “Dyer’s gifts as a no­ticer be­come fully ap­par­ent.”
