Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born and raised in Mississippi and Tennessee, William Eggleston began taking pictures during the 1960s after seeing Henri Cartier-Bresson's The Decisive Moment. In 1966 he changed from black and white to color film, perhaps to make the medium more his own and less that of his esteemed predecessors. John Sarkowski, when he was curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, called Eggleston the "first color photographer, " and certainly the world in which we consider a color photograph as art has changed because of Eggleston.<P>From 1966 to 1971, Eggleston would occasionally use a two and one quarter inch format for photographs. These are collected and published here for the first time, adding more classic Eggleston images to photography's color canon.

Review:

"The Eggleston vision of the world is clear, and clarifying to our own." Eudora Welty

Review:

"And there are people too, neither sad nor ironic?like everything captured by Mr. Eggleston's expeditionary eye, like everything he sees. they are heartbreaking and indifferent." Bruce Wagner from the Afterword
