Gary Winogrand's publication Women Are Beautiful (above) is an actual binder full of women. This portfolio includes 85 photographs of women that were originally presented at New York's Light Gallery in 1975. The images highlight Winogrand's signature aesthetic that encouraged appreciation of chance juxtapositions and an erratic shooting style.
One of the images showcases a group of women in the annual St. Patrick's Day parade in 1975. If you're a Chicago resident, it's easy to tell that the group is traveling down State Street with the Chicago Theatre and the El in the background. Although at this time, the Chicago Theatre was a movie theater—don't miss The Godfather or the Clint Eastwood double feature! All of the images are currently on view in the museum's photography galleries.
