Description

Brand recalls visiting the Museum of Modern Art with Winogrand after lunch one afternoon in 1966, where both photographed in the lobby. Winogrand captured a young woman sitting demurely on a sofa while writing, one foot slipping out of her shoe. An Arnaldo Pomodoro sphere sculpture figures prominently behind her, almost obscuring Henri Matisse's painting Dance (I). Less interested than Winogrand in the seated woman, Brand moved quickly across the lobby to capture a worker as he moved a cigarette machine past Dance (I), his pose mirroring those of the painted figures behind him.
