About this Item

First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Red cloth-covered boards, with tipped-in color plate, no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by William Eggleston. 100 pp. with 45 four-color plates. 11 x 11 inches. This first edition was limited to 5000 hardbound copies. Good (moderate shelf wear, bumps to the boards and rubbing and indentations to the front plate; remaindered copy). From the publisher: "Born and raised in Mississippi and Tennessee, William Eggleston began taking pictures during the 1960's after seeing Henri Cartier-Bresson's The Decisive Moment. In 1966 he changed from black and white to color film, perhaps to make the medium more his own and less that of his esteemed predecessors. John Szarkowski, when he was curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, called Eggleston the 'first color photographer,' and certainly the world in which we consider a color photograph as art has changed because of Eggleston's work. From 1966 to 1971, Eggleston would occasionally use a two and one quarter inch format for photographs. These are published here for the first time, adding more classic Eggleston images to photography's color canon.". Bookseller Inventory # 108116

About this title

Synopsis:

Born and raised in Mississippi and Tennessee, William Eggleston began taking pictures during the 1960s after seeing Henri Cartier-Bresson's The Decisive Moment. In 1966 he changed from black and white to color film, perhaps to make the medium more his own and less that of his esteemed predecessors. John Sarkowski, when he was curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, called Eggleston the "first color photographer," and certainly the world in which we consider a color photograph as art has changed because of Eggleston. From 1966 to 1971, Eggleston would occasionally use a two and one quarter inch format for photographs. These are collected and published here for the first time, adding more classic Eggleston images to photography's color canon.
