Cel­e­brat­ing one of the most in­flu­en­tial photograph­ers of the 20th cen­tury, Garry Wino­grand: Color, is the first ex­hi­bi­tion that high­lights the artist’s color pho­to­graphs. Pri­mar­ily known for his serendip­i­tous, black-and­white street pho­tog­ra­phy, the Newyork na­tive pi­o­neered the “snap­shot aes­thetic” in con­tem­po­rary art and helped turn it into a re­spected art form. Dur­ing the early 1950s and late-1960s, how­ever ,wino­grand pro­duced more than 45,000 color slides, and this ex­hi­bi­tion show­cases an in­stal­la­tion of large-scale pro­jec­tions com­pris­ing more than 400 rarely or never be­fore seen color pho­to­graphs.the images open a win­dow into the landscape of New York City and the United States at that time.the ex­hi­bi­tion will be on view through De­cem­ber 8.
