A.O. Scott, chief film critic for The New York Times, recently reviewed Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable, directed by Sasha Waters Freyer, chair of VCUarts Photography + Film. The film documents the life and work of Garry Winogrand, the prolific street photographer whose public debut was in the 1960s at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The film had its Virginia premiere at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts earlier this month.

Scott said of the film:

Informative but not overwhelming, it blends biography and appreciative analysis in 90 brisk, packed minutes. Visual artists are especially good subjects for this kind of documentary, and still images like Winogrand’s — mostly black-and-white, full of latent drama and arrested kineticism — lend themselves to cinematic contemplation.
