Garry Winogrand, Hollywood Boulevard, 1969

From the Getty Museum:

A disabled man, bent over in a wheelchair, captures the attention of three women walking by and a boy seated on a bus stop bench. Garry Winogrand’s photograph of Hollywood’s once-glamorous Walk of Fame depicts strangers reacting to one another in a public space. The image emphasizes an encounter between people of differing social and economic backgrounds and is therefore a highly political social commentary. Elongated crisscrossing shadows falling across the celebrity’s stars on the boulevard add a touch of melodrama to the momentary interaction.
