William Eggleston. Fondation Cartier, Paris/Thames and Hudson, New York, 2002. 180 pp. Square quarto. First edition. SIGNED on title page. Photo-illustrated boards. No jacket as issued. Color reproductions.
This beautifully printed catalogue covers as wide a range of Eggleston's prodigious output as the critically lauded 2008 exhibition at the Whitney Museum in New York.
"One of the most influential photographers of the last half-century, William Eggleston has defined the history of color photography....Psychologically complex and casually refined, bordering on kitsch and never conventionally beautiful, [Eggleston's] photographs speak principally to the expanse of [his] imagination and have had a pervasive influence on all aspects of visual culture. By not censoring, rarely editing, and always photographing, Eggleston convinces us of the idea of the democratic camera."--The Whitney Musuem
