About William Eggleston

William Eggleston (b. 1939) is an American photographer. Due to his attention to the banal, his colour photographs record everyday subject matter. Such as motel rooms and store fronts, in eccentric, refined compositions. So, each detail is important, potentially carrying beauty and mystery. As a result of this ground breaking work, he became the main catalyst for New American Color Photography. Therefore, Eggleston is largely credited with making colour photography known as a fine art form.
