William Eggleston

William Eggleston is one of the most influential photographers of the latter half of the 20th century. His portraits and landscapes of the American South reframed the history of the medium and its relationship to colour photography. He is widely accredited with increasing recognition for colour photography as a legitimate artistic medium to display in art galleries.

Eggleston sees the complexity and beauty of the mundane world. His work is characterised by its ordinary subject matter; this may include old tyres, torn posters, power wires, parking meter signs, road signs.
