In his thirty years of photography, Winogrand captured a vibrant urban America, documenting the city and its denizens through innovative street photography. Using a wide-angle lens, he photographed his subjects "from the hip," literally, often tilting the frame, creating a snapshot effect suggesting the immediacy and vivacity of the photographic moment. Winogrand's Women are Beautiful series comprises 85 photographs, taken in the 1960s and 1970s, of women in public places.
