Forged by his own words and images, Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable is a stunningly intimate portrait of a man who both personified his era and transformed it. It’s the first documentary film on the life and work of acclaimed photographer Garry Winogrand––the epic storyteller in pictures of America across three turbulent decades. His artistry encompassed the heartbreak, violence, hope, and turmoil of postwar America, from the frenzy of its urban core to the alienation of its emergent suburbs. Decades before digital technology transformed how we make and see pictures, Garry Winogrand made hundreds of thousands of them, creating an encyclopedic portrait of America in the process. When he died suddenly at age 56 in 1984, Winogrand left behind more than 10,000 rolls of film––more than a quarter of a million pictures! These images capture a bygone era: the New York of Mad Men and the early years of the Women’s Movement, the birth of American suburbs, and the glamour and alienation of Hollywood. In addition to hundreds of iconic photographs, the film uses rarely seen 8mm color home movies, as well as newly discovered audio tapes of Winogrand, which are the only non-staged media of the artist in existence. This is a film about a particular man, a particular artist, but also about nothing less than our culture.
