All Things Are Photographable
All Things Are Photographable (original title)
A film by Sasha Waters Freyer
All Things Are Photographable is the first documentary film on the life and work of acclaimed photographer Garry Winogrand (1928-1984) – the epic storyteller 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. Thirty years on, his most well-known photos – of Marilyn Monroe, her skirt blown askew on the set of The Seven Year Itch; Norman Mailer’s 50th birthday party; tourists at Dealy Plaza in Dallas following the Kennedy assassination and among hundreds of others – remain unforgettable. He also captured city streets teeming with women newly liberated from the repressive 1950’s; rowdy Texas rodeos, political conventions and angry protests, zoos, parades and celebrity balls. His camera seized upon the spectacle of a massive social upheaval – that age when our now-global mania for self-promotion and exhibitionism was beginning.
