Synopsis: At the end of the 1950s William Eggleston began to photograph around his home in Memphis using black-and-white 35mm film. Fascinated by the photography of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Eggleston declared at the time: "I couldn't imagine doing anything more than making a perfect fake Cartier-Bresson." Eventually Eggleston developed his own style which later shaped his seminal work in color-an original vision of the American everyday with its icons of banality: supermarkets, diners, service stations, automobiles and ghostly figures lost in space. From Black and White to Color includes some exceptional as-yet-unpublished photographs, and displays the evolution, ruptures and above all the radicalness of Eggleston's work when he began photographing in color at the end of the 1960s. Here we discover similar obsessions and recurrent themes as present in his early black-and-white work including ceilings, food, and scenes of waiting, as well as Eggleston's unconventional croppings-all definitive traits of the photographer who famously proclaimed, "I am at war with the obvious."

Review: With his Leica, Eggleston managed to rival Edward Hopper in melancholy and ordinariness. (Louisa McCune ArtDesk)

Book Description Gegen Ende der 1950er Jahre begann William Eggleston (Jg. 1939) die Gegend rund um sein Zuhause in Memphis in 35mm-s/w-Film zu fotografieren. Inspiriert von den Bildern Henri Cartier-Bressons, erklärte Eggleston damals »Ich konnte mir nichts anderes vorstellen als eine perfekte Imitation der Arbeit Cartier-Bressons anzufertigen«. Im Laufe der Zeit entwickelte Eggleston seinen eigenen Stil, der seinen bahnbrechenden Farbfotografien Form gab - ein origineller Blick auf den amerikanischen Alltag, mit seinen Ikonen der Banalität: Supermärkte, Diners, Tankstellen, Autos und geisterhafte Figuren, die sich im Raum verlieren. Dieser Band enthält eine Auswahl außergewöhnlicher sowie bislang unveröffentlichter Fotografien und bringt die Entwicklung und Radikalität in Egglestons Werk näher, als er gegen Ende der 1960er Jahre begann, in Farbe zu fotografieren. Themen wurden aufgegriffen, die bereits in seinen frühen schwarz-weiß-Fotografien präsent waren, wie Decken, Essen, Szenen des Wartens sowie Egglestons unkonventionelle Ausschnitte - alle definitive Merkmale eines Fotografen, der einst erklärte »Ich stehe mit dem Offensichtlichen auf Kriegsfuß«.
