Publisher's Description
Now in its second edition

William Eggleston’s latest monograph features photographs taken during the early 1970s using a large format 5x7 camera. While the book includes imagery typical of the Eggleston oeuvre– streetscapes, parked automobiles, portraits of the strange and disenfranchised–the book also offers never-before-published photographs taken in the nightclubs Eggleston used to frequent.

With it (his camera and portable strobes) Eggleston could shoot in virtual darkness in the juke joints and clubs around Memphis. The portraits are offhand and spontaneous but insistently stark; their brutality is heightened by the absence of color. The portraits have a leveling effect–whether biker or debutante, the people Eggleston photographed are clearly denizens of the same realm. (He) is reminding us: look closely, each of these individuals is subtly different.
-Walter Hopps

Riveting as the sitters’ accoutrements are, most compelling is the way in which each person is at once magnified–laid bare and vulnerable. . . . Staring, smiling, grimacing, glowering, these are less portraits of “individuals” than of the expressions that settle fleetingly on their malleable features. Each face feels stranger and more physically ambivalent than the next.
-Johanna Burtxon, Artforum
