When legendary New York street photographer Winogrand received his first Guggenheim fellowship in 1964, he traveled the country for four months, visiting 14 states and shooting hundreds of rolls of film. His photos have long crystallized 1960s America, and several of his most famous images originate from this roadtrip, first showcased in MoMA's 1967 "New Documents" exhibit. However, most of the pictures he took at this time were never published, and remained largely unseen in the photographer's archive at the Center for Creative Photography, Tuscon, until the present monograph. "I have been photographing the United States, trying by investigating photographically to learn who we are and how we feel, by seeing what we look like as history has been and is happening to us in this world" (from Winogrand's report to the Guggenheim Foundation on the completion of his trip). 195 color and black-and-white photographic plates; with an essay by CCCP curator and Winogrand scholar Stack, and a chronology for the year 1964. Published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition organized by the CCCP and supported by the NEA. Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #234
