WINOGRAND, Garry. Women Are Beautiful.

(New York, NY): Light Gallery / Farrar, Straus & Giroux (1975). First Edition. Oblong octavo. The softcover issue. Essay by Helen Gary Bishop. Winogrand’s best, and most sought after book, with many of his iconic images.  A pioneer off street photography, Winogrand walked the streets of the United States and captured women in photography.  The 1960s and 1970s were at the height of the second wave of feminism and the sexual revolution. Women underwent transformative changes of attitude as a result of their powerful exercise of inner and outer freedom.  During that period, Winogrand captured the figure of confident, free, rebellious, happy, and beautiful women in his lens. He took the photos of women going about their day-to-day life activities – be it by the swimming pool, on the street, on the beach, or the market, capturing that social change through his lens.  A very good copy in wrappers.  A nice copy of this important work.
