Behind the Scenes at the 1960 Democratic Convention

A swell photo gallery of Garry Winogrand’s images from the 1960 Democratic Convention.

That’s the one where John F. Kennedy was nominated for president. Another shot from the same set:

Smoke ’em if you got ’em!

The photos will be part of a Winogrand exhibition at SFMOMA in 2013.
