The amateur, snapshotlike appearance of Garry Winogrand's Beverly Hills photograph is completely intentional. Winogrand often approached his subjects at a slightly skewed angle, tilting the picture frame in order to create an off-balance sense of reality. As a result his images of people captured unwittingly effectively convey the frenetic energy found along the urban street. In this photograph, a man is divided from a group of women by a street lamp, accentuating fundamental differences between the two sexes. This picture was made while Winogrand was considering a series entitled "Women are Better Than Men."
