In 1964, photographer Garry Winogrand documented, with some 185 photographs, a United States at a moment in time. Winogrand’s photos show the 1960s, a decade characterized in this country by the Viet Nam War and the Civil Rights Movement, in quotidian detail.

Shot in both black and white and color on the road, through the window of his car; in airport terminals; at the beach and at state fairs and tourist attractions, Winogrand’s photos show a United States increasingly marked by mass cultural norms, while remaining youthful and otherwise unselfconscious.
