Sharon Lockharts best photograph: blind girls reading braille at the Los Angeles public library

The best moment came when they felt my face to see who I was

This photograph makes some people feel uncomfortable. Perhaps they feel guilty about looking at blind people. But at the same time viewers stay looking at it for a long time. It draws attention to the fact that the viewer can see but the girls are reading braille words through touch that someone looking at the photograph can never see.

I knew Alma and Liana really well by the time we made the picture. I met them at the Braille Institute in Los Angeles, where they were both in the choir. This was the first time that I worked with people who couldnt see what my concept was. I normally show my subject a Polaroid of how I want the final image to look, and we work towards achieving it. I couldnt do that with these girls, and that was a great challenge for me. I had to completely change my way of communicating by describing something visual with only language and not photography. It made me more articulate.

Garry Winogrand: the restless genius who gave street photography attitude

From the Bronx to Dealey Plaza, Garry Winogrand pounded the streets of America every day of his life photographing reluctant subjects and he left behind 6,500 undeveloped films when he died. A powerful new retrospective makes sense of the torrent of imagery by the prolific American master

When Im photographing I see life. Thats what I deal with, Garry Winogrand once said. Life, for him, was the energy of the street in all its unruly momentum. In the 1960s and 70s, he defined street photography as an attitude as well as a style and it has laboured in his shadow ever since, so definitive are his photographs of New York.

Thirty years after his untimely death in 1984, aged 56, Winogrands legend endures: the instinctive genius of American photography whose disinterest in technique was matched by an obsessive devotion to shooting on the street all day, every day. Towards the end of his life, photographing became a kind of mania he left behind 6,500 rolls of unprocessed film.
