The most important documentary record of American airports in the transitional phase between exclusivity and the present era of comfortless democratization is by Garry Winogrand. Through his insatiable eagerness to photograph, Winogrand became a one-man archive of the social landscape of the Sixties and Seventies. The airport work was posthumously published in 2004 as Arrivals and Departures. - From "Travel Day", Harper's Magazine, 2015
