Winogrand: Figments from the Real World

 

“an exposé of American life in the middle of the last century”

Figments From The Real World is loaded with precise moments such as “Untitled 1950s’ on page 47 and ‘New York, Before 1976” on page 93.

The New Your City shots from the 1950s are timeless; the hats, the dresses, the streets of the city that never sleeps bleeding history through the black and white images.

Intimate portraits from subjects that invites Winogrand’s lenses to be part of the story their faces are telling.  It is close and personal;  I can feel the vibe of the moment.

“World Fair, New York-1964” on page 90;  total classic street photography, depicting society at that time.

The chapter on “Women” showcases elegance, with slim bodies and fitted dresses. My favorite is on page 103, walking down the streets of New York City dressed in white loaded with confidence and she has tiny curlers in her hair.

The Zoo chapter displays family entertainment in the 1960s, literally from the history books.

Figments From The Real World is a collection of daily life images in the US, including celebrities (politicians & entertainers) of that time.  It’s an exposé of American life in the middle of the last century,  time gone forever.

Winogrand died in 1984.

OUR CONCEPT

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator

Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life.  Most of it was acquired during my travels.  Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity.  But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell.  It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale.  The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!

The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow.  And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM”  the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.

WHY DISPLAY YOUR ART AT THE NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY?

The gallery is designed to connect the art seekers and collectors with artists directly. We offer artists a COMMISSION FREE / CONTRACT FREE online platform to sell their creations and engage with their clients using portfolio pages that are engaging with large images and a dramatic black background.

NO MIDDLEMAN is a boutique ART GALLERY; individuals browsing our archives and portfolio pages are relaxed, not pressured to sign up, agree with website terms, or maneuvering out of pop-up windows.

For details regarding participating in the NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY please contact Joelcy Kay the curator at jo@edgeofhumanity.com.
