In the 1960s Tod Papageorge had a close artistic exchange with Garry Winogrand, with both artists meeting on an almost daily basis to take photographs in the streets of New York. During the 1970s, he received two Guggenheim Fellowships in photography and a pair of National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship-Grants. In 1979, following one-year appointments at MIT and then Harvard, he was named the Walker Evans Professor of Photography at the Yale School of Art, where he also held the position of Director of Graduate Study in Photography until 2011.
