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

 I photograph to see what things look like photographed. 
 There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described. 
 Photography is about finding out what can happen in the frame. When you put four edges around some facts, you change those facts. 
 I like to work in that area where content almost overwhelms form. 
 You see something happening and you bang away at it. Either you get what you saw or you get something else—and whichever is better you print. 
 Every photograph is a battle of form versus content. The good ones are on the border of failure. 
 There is no special way a photograph should look. 
 The photograph isn’t what was photographed. It’s something else. It’s a new fact.
