Photographs by William Eggleston. Introduction by William Eggleston III. Essay by Mark Holborn.
Eggleston is largely credited with legitimising colour photography as a fine art form. More than a century after the advent of colour film, his first museum exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1976, was also the first fine art exhibition of colour photography. Some thirty-five years after this historic moment, he continues to innovate in the photographic medium.
The portfolio contains two sewn-bound folios (one with 10 vertically oriented plates and the introduction, another contains 27 horizontally oriented plates), and an illustrated 16pp. booklet with an essay by Mark Holborn.
