Photographs by Garry Winogrand. Text by John Szarkowski.
The Museum of Modern Art, New York City, 2004. 48 pp., 46 duotones, 10x8½".
Joining the ranks of reprinted titles
mentioned in Andrew Roth's monumental The Book of 101
Books is The Animals, one of two titles offered this season on Garry Winogrand, the master of deceptively simple
street photography. The Animals was first published as a
paperback by The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in
1968; it is they who bring the title back into print, this
time as a hardcover book with dustjacket, some 36 years
later. John Szarkowski, then Director of Photography at
MoMA lent his hand to the essay. "Winogrand's zoo, even
if true, is a grotesquery. It is a surreal Disneyland where
unlikely human beings and jaded careerist animals stare
at each other through bars, exhibiting bad manners and
a mutual failure to recognize their own ludicrous predicaments."
—Szarkowski. Public Relations, published by
MoMA, in 1977.
