William Eggleston : democratic camera, photographs and video, 1961-2008 by Elisabeth Sussman( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elvis's Graceland, a freezer stuffed with food, a Gulf gasoline sign standing in a deserted rural landscape, these are only a few of the iconic images captured by the "democratic camera" of photographer William Eggleston. Not only has he drawn upon images so telling of American culture, he has produced them with an intensity and balance of color that have helped elevate the entire field of color photography to a fine art, especially since his 1976 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. Drawing together Eggleston̕s famous and lesser known works, this lavishly illustrated catalogue is the first to examine both his photography and videos. Of particular relevance are his black and white images from the late 1950s and 1960s, which helped shape his color photography, as well as the relationship between his provocative video recordings of 1970s Memphis nightlife and his later work. Included are reproductions of newly restored prints, executed specifically for the exhibition. Filled with new and challenging contributions to scholarship and accompanying the first major U.S. survey of his work, this catalogue will prove the standard reference for Eggleston's photographs for years to come

William Eggleston : photographer by Reiner Holzemer( Visual )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The film documents how Eggleston came to develop his technique of art photography. It shows the first black-and-white photographs made at the beginning of Eggleston's career. Here the influence of Henri Cartier Bresson's 'decisive moment' is still evident. Yet Eggleston went his own artistic way early on. Elements of his later work in color can already be discerned in the composition of the black-and-white photographs"--Container
