All Things are Photographable
A Feature Documentary Film about Garry Winogrand by Sasha Waters Freyer
All Things are Photographable is the first documentary film on the life and work of acclaimed photographer Garry Winogrand – the epic storyteller in pictures of America across three turbulent decades. His artistry encompassed the heartbreak, violence, hope, and turmoil of postwar America, from the frenzy of its urban core to the alienation of its emergent suburbs.
Endorsed by his estate, All Things are Photographable is the first cinematic survey of that legacy. The film tells the story of an artist whose rise and fall was – like America’s in the late decades of the 20th century – larger-than-life, full of contradictions and totally unresolved.
The project is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and premiered at the SXSW festival in 2018. The US iTunes release was Jan 2, 2019, and its broadcast premiere will be on PBS April 19, 2019, as part of the “American Masters” series.
I worked on this project as a Primary Research and provided information on the location of audiotapes and videomaterial and the content of these. More information on the project can be found below:
