Hooray! Thanks, Rocco. It's time Garry got more serious attention. Szarkowski did a good job with the book: Winogrand: Figments From the Real World, but the guy deserves to be included in that small group at the forefront of twentieth century photographers. After Szarkowski's book Winogrand sort of dropped out of sight. Maybe this show will put him back where he belongs.

Why miss it? Adopt a British ploy: go off sick for the day.

They make these presentations last around 30-60 minutes depending on the presenter and materials covered-
Then how hard would it be to not stay the rest of the afternoon?
But long lunches with a martini would be worse;
so just tell el jeffe you are having a short meeting with an interesting and authoritative source concerning one of your life's passions.
Why not?
@ 2 hour lunches aren't unheard of...
