About the Author 
Born in 1928 in New York, Garry Winogrand began photographing while in the United States Air Force. His first one-man exhibition was held in 1960 in New York, and he was given a solo showing at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, just three years later; landmark group exhibitions in which he took part include Toward a Social Landscape and New Documents. Winogrand received a Guggenheim fellowship in 1964, which led him to photograph extensively in California and the American Southwest; another, in 1969, began a period of work concerned with the effect of the media on public events. Published portfolios of his work include The Animals, Stock Photographs: Fort Worth Fat Stock Show and Rodeo, and The Man in the Crowd. Garry Winogrand died in 1984.  
Book Description 
If Garry Winogrand photographed everything, all the time, as he is famous for having done, his pictures of airports convey, despite their dated hair styles and clothing, the many still very familiar sights and spaces and sensations attached to air travel. Arriving at an airport, checking baggage, watching other travelers amble, walk, and sometimes rush by, luggage trailing and flailing and neatly rolling along, passengers waiting forever on those long rows of attached seats, friends and relatives greeting each other and saying goodbye: everything that happened and stills happens in these vast public spaces. Winogrand's airport photographs were taken over a period of 25 years, with the first frame shot around 1958 and the last in 1983, just months before his death. In Winogrand's archive at the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona in Tucson, there are hundreds of contact sheets containing airport images, and over 1,100 prints of airplanes and airports that Winogrand made during his lifetime. Edited by Alex Harris, one of the first to publish selections from this body of work, in DoubleTake magazine in 1996, and longtime friend and colleague Lee Friendlander, The Airport Pictures of Garry Winogrand assembles 86 of the photographer's most compelling, never-before published images of travelers, flight attendants, airport waiting rooms, airplanes on runways, and all the people and places in between.  
Winogrand was acutely sensitive to glances, gestures, and body language, and especially to the implicit eroticism of the camera's gaze. His inability to resist taking pleasure in the sights of the world--his compulsive yen to capture on film nearly everything he saw--is, in the end, what makes his images irresistible. --Andy Grundberg  
To this viewer [Winogrand] seems, in fact, the central photographer of his generation. --John Szarkowski  
For Garry, airplanes, like bridges and tunnels, brought on a cold sweat. Probably he started photogrpahing seriously at airports because he had made a few good pictures at times and had recognized the airport as a way to assuage his own anxiety about the coming plane trip. He would arrive at the airport very early so as to have time to watch and then get lost in his work. What was reaped was the rich bounty held between these book covers. --Lee Friedlander
