Cameras are a modern technology that most people use without fully understanding. Photography is based on each person's perspective and the way he or she uses the camera.
Gowin photographs his wife's family in rural Virginia. He sees symbolism and storytelling in photographs.
Gowin trusts his feelings about knowing what to photograph. He finds beauty in revealing the layers of a structure.
Winogrand photographs life and frames the image based on what he wants to include. He says photos have no narrative ability because they only capture what a moment looked like.
Winogrand learns through failure. He takes thousands of photographs and searches through them for the ones he wants to use in his shows.
