About the publication

Born in 1939 in Memphis, William Eggleston made color photography recognized as an artistic expression. Associating violent tones with banal subjects, his work has a seminal influence on contemporary photography.
Bringing together the artist’s most significant works—from his first black-and-white prints to pieces specially realized for the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain—the catalog for the William Eggleston exhibition presented in 2001 is an opportunity to rediscover this key artist whose saturated colors and exaggerated perspectives transform ordinary subjects into metaphors for a strange and unsettling world.
