Capturing Beauty


The work of Garry Winogrand (1928-84) helped define American street photography in the late Twentieth Century. Winogrand’s photographs of street life, the suburbs, and the fractured, postwar, new consumer culture that emerged in the 1960s and ’70s, remind us that everyday is filled with anonymous joy. “Women Are Beautiful” is an exhibit of the Pop and Mod 1960s. These photographs attest to the ever-changing nature of fashion and the representation of female beauty. As some of the earliest modern street photographs, they raise tricky issues like the “male gaze” and voyeurism, and how they relate to the paparazzi-style reportage that is a mainstay of our contemporary culture. The exhibit is open through August 23rd at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
