Garry Winogrand (American, 1928 – 1984). "Coney Island, New York," ca. 1952.

On today’s show, we’ll look at the growing number of middle-class Americans who can’t afford to retire and who’ve become migrant laborers working at temporary jobs around the country. David Benjamin tells us about using corn stalks and mushroom roots as building materials—he’s created a tower out of them in the courtyard of MoMA PS1 in Long Island City. We’ll find out about a retrospective of photographer Garry Winogrand’s work, on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This week’s Please Explain is all about herbs.
