Core Curriculum - Aperture Foundation
"Core Curriculum: Writings on Photography is the long-awaited collection of essays, reviews, and lectures—some of which have gained a cult following online—by Tod Papageorge, one of the most influential voices in photography today. As the Walker Evans Professor of Photography at Yale University School of Art, Papageorge has shaped the work of generations of artist/photographers, and earned a reputation as an unusually eloquent guide to the work of many important figures in twentieth-century photography.

Among the artists Papageorge discusses in this essential volume are Atget, Brassaï, Robert Frank (with Walker Evans), Robert Adams, and his close friend, Garry Winogrand. The book also includes texts examining photography’s relationship to poetry, and how the medium’s early technologies led to the creation of the self-conscious twentieth-century photographer/artist. Among the previously unpublished pieces are an unfinished poem on Sontag’s On Photography, a profile of Josef Koudelka, and a commencement speech delivered at Yale in 2004.

Core Curriculum also includes interviews with Papageorge, sharing his energetic observations on his own photographic work, and on the art as a whole.

Tod Papageorge (born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, 1940) has been Walker Evans Professor of Photography at Yale University School of Art since 1979. His work has been widely exhibited, and published in two monographs, American Sports, 1970, or, How We Spent the War in Vietnam (Aperture, 2008) and Passing Through Eden: Photographs of Central Park (2007). He was awarded Guggenheim Fellowships in 1970 and 1977, and the Rome Commission for Photography in 2010. He lives in New Haven, Connecticut."

Considering Street Photography — On Photography — Medium
“I hate the term [street photographer]. I think it’s a stupid term, “street photography.” I don’t think it tells you anything about a photographer or work. I have a book out called The Animals, so call me a zoo photographer? Doesn’t make any sense to me.”

“I get totally out of myself – it is the closest I come to not existing. Which is the best.”

Rare Interview With Garry Winogrand - Inside Aperture
[Wayback: ]

“There’ve been times it’s been just impossible to find a negative or whatever. … I don’t have a filing system that’s worth very much.”

“It’s hopeless. I’ve given up. You just go through a certain kind of drudgery every time you have to look for something. I’ve got certain things grouped by now, but there’s a drudgery in finding them. There’s always stuff missing.”

“Winogrand almost never developed his film immediately. He was in no rush to edit his film, and he makes a strong case for it. He said he deliberately waited a year or two in order to lose the memory of the take.

“If I was in a good mood when I was shooting one day, then developed the film right away, I might choose a picture because I remember how good I felt when I took it.” “Better to let the film ‘age,’ the better to grade slides or contact sheets objectively”.”
