I know this book is often maligned, and I get that, but also think that totally misunderstands his vision. Winogrand was utterly fearless with his camera and how that reflects his own experience in life. And his pictures are full of a profound playfulness and curiosity. He was utterly fearless with his camera, and possessed a great wit and insight into human social behavior.
