WILLIAM EGGLESTON: “Before Color” (2010)

By Doug Rickard William Eggleston is a “Southern” artist. Without a deeper explanation, this statement itself could mean a few things. If you look at the body of his work on the whole, the majority of it (almost all) is set within the Southern environs of the US… places like Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and […]

Known for his rich and complex images of the American South, William Eggleston is the godfather of colour photography.

WILLIAM EGGLESTON: “Introduction to William Eggleston’s Guide” (1976)

Sumner, Mississippi, Cassidy Bayou in background By John Szarkowski At this writing I have not yet visited Memphis, or northern Mississippi, and thus have no basis for judging how closely the photographs in this book might seem to resemble that part of the world and the life that is lived there. I have, however, visited […]

Photography within the humanities

JOHN SZARKOWSKI: “Evening Lecture at Wellesley College” (1977)

Evening Lecture I would like to address myself to what may seem to be a positively primitive question, and consider in an exploratory way the manner in which photography has changed our understanding of the idea of pictorial subject. The fact of the matter, if we are to begin on the basis of full and open disclosure, is that […]
