I went to the Met. There was a Garry Winogrand show on! (1928-1984)
Winnogrand rose to fame for capturing the American Life in the early to mid sixties, shooting the Bronx Zoo and Coney Island, the people on the streets of New York and forays into the South and the West of the country. People in everyday life were the subjects and his photographs are a beautiful reminder of an America that was struggling to find itself.
His photos are down and dirty, plying the murky waters of the depths, searching for that spark in the dark.

Poor Iraq! I feel so horribly sad for the people of Iraq, they have had war, bombings, civil war since the early 1980s, how much more can these poor people take?
