I read an article by somebody who followed classes by Garry Winogrand in 1975. He was asked on one occasion by Garry if he aspired to be a photographer himself. When the man said yes, Garry warned him that “few photographers make any real money in the business, but even if you are broke, it’s worth it.” Certainly in Garry Winogrand’s case it was worth it. He left us an incredible body of work, from which several books have been made, and the images keep inspiring a great number of photographers today.
