William Eggleston:

  • One of the first non-commercial photographers that began to shoot in colour.
  • Creates images from commonplace objects, the banal and everyday, with a special attention to detail.
  • Makes large-format prints to monumentalize otherwise mundane objects.
  • Does not discriminate between the objects he shoots, that is, “he sees a sunset the same as a dirty toilet filled with piss.”
