In Bystander: A History of Street Photography, Joel Meyerowitz says:
One day when I was with Garry (Winogrand), he got a phone call from this guy who said he wanted to be a photographer and could he come up to talk. It turned out that he had come straight to to New York from college, where he had been a literature major, but now he was interested in taking pictures. So he (Tod Papageorge) began to hang out with Garry too. There was a long period in 1964-65 when the three of us- Garry, Tod, and me- would go out shooting together, and I believe Tod began doing some of Garry’s printing then as well. Garry was progressively pulling away from the darkroom, and my recall is that probably half of the pictures in The Animals were printed by Tod.
In Tim Davis’s essay, Sit-In at the Fotomat, he writes:
For years, Tod Papageorge, the head of the Photography Department at the Yale University School of Art, would begin student critiques of color pictures with the question, “Why color?” Color was an aesthetic choice and Papageorge felt students needed to account for it.
Tell me your Papageorge story.
