This series of Garry Winogrand’s photographs from the 1960’s Democratic Convention held in LA is worth your time. Winogrand’s innate ability to capture moments stands the test of time.
On a personal note, I lived in Washington, D.C. for a brief stint to try out political photography. I still wax poetically about my experience photographing President Clinton on Airforce One, but after a few days of being elbowed in a press pool of mostly sweaty, aggressive men with bad fashion sense, I decided political photography was not for me and I moved to LA where the men are better groomed and the town and weather much more to my liking. Within my first few months in LA, I shot my first wedding and shortly thereafter, launched Docuvitae. The experience in D.C. gave me a great appreciation for those who make art in the midst of a political landscape and this series by Winogrand was a treat.
Happy Friday. Enjoy your weekend!
Captured by Rebecca of Docuvitae, this chic affair is a new favorite, from the fancy flowers to the sunset ceremony under a chuppah. Please Click here to head over to Style Me Pretty to read more about this wedding and view their images.
Docuvitae photographers are traveling! One of our latest weddings took Rebecca to Florida where she photographed Haley & Lucas wedding in the bride’s parent’s sleek, contemporary home in Boca Raton. To read more about her adventure and this multi-cultural wedding, click here.
