Women Are Beautiful. Photographs by Garry Winogrand. Essay, "First Person, Feminine", by Helen Gary Bishop. Light Gallery Books, New York, 1975. 94 pp. Squarish quarto. Clothbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Numerous black-and-white illustrations printed by Rapoport. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase (not original).

A nice example of the hardbound edition of Winogrand's masterpiece. Winogrand writes, "I don't know if all the women in the photographs are beautiful, but I do know that the women are beautiful in the photographs." A canonical work of candid and street photography that depicts women in ways that whimsically counter traditional stereotypes of feminine beauty.

Excerpt from an interview with Winogrand in Visions and Images: American Photographers on Photography. Interviews with photographers by Barbara Diamonstein, 1981–1982 (Rizzoli)

Barbara Diamonstein: There is another record that you made of one of your interests, at least at the time! I'm referring to the book on women. How did you assemble that collection?

Winogrand: It's the same thing, you know. I'm still compulsively interested in women. It's funny, I've always compulsively photographed women. I still do. I may very well do "Son of Women are Beautiful." I certainly have the work. I mean, I have the pictures if I wanted to try to get something like that published. It would be a joke.

BD: Do you intend to?

GW: No. That's all we need, another book like that! The thing that was interesting about doing that book was my difficulty in dealing with the pictures. When the woman is attractive, is it an interesting picture, or is it the woman? I had a lot of headaches with that, which was why it was interesting.

Fine+ in Fine dust jacket that shows just a bit of shelf wear.
