Inspiration: William Eggleston


"Eggleton's focus on a world of images which is associated with ordinary American life, with which he has a kind of love-hate relationship and of which various groups of works show perpetual variations, results in our immediately associating certain objects with his work. The combination of his special way of looking at things and his specific composition gives rise to an individual visual language whose recurring elements, or those developed on this basis, create a style which, via this recognition, reveals Eggleston as the originator of these images."

-Thomas Weski, "From Memphis With Love"

  2. Do you have Chromes? It's a must for any Eggleston fan! He had such a way of finding the beauty in the ordinary! My photography professor had us study his work when I first got into color photography.
