william eggleston

william eggleston got my attention from the previous post. an american photographer credited for securing color photography( 1970s) as an artistic medium-his pictures are characterized by its ordinary subject-matter. he shows the beauty in these daily objects-with colors and  honesty. i like the sincerity of his pictures showing the  american vernacular -gas stations, diners and parking lots.they are beautifully mundane !!

“old tyres, Dr Pepper machines, discarded air-conditioners, vending machines, empty and dirty Coca-Cola bottles, torn posters, power poles and power wires, street barricades, one-way signs, detour signs, No Parking signs, parking meters and palm trees crowding the same curb.” by Eudora Welty who describes we’s subject matters.
