Promising “amazing eye candy on the big screen,” work has begun on a feature-length documentary film about master photographer Garry Winogrand, whose groundbreaking photos from the 60s and 70s have influenced generations of street photographers and photojournalists. However, with only days left until the project’s Kickstarter campaign ends, less than half the money needed to complete the project has been raised.
Directed by Shasha Waters Freyer, the movie Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable is in post-production, according to the Kickstarter page, and the release date has been pushed back from early 2017 to early 2018.
The documentary, which is being billed as “the most comprehensive study of Winogrand’s work” will present a biography of Winogrand based on his media appearances, letters, newly-discovered audio cassette recordings, and never-before-seen 8mm film footage of his family and New York City. Interviews with Leo Rubenfein, Todd Papageorge and others will be included.
This “all or nothing” fundraiser ends on April 10, 2017.
