Eggleston Retrospective at the Whitney

with 3 comments

Guess what, guys… the Whitney Museum in fabulous New York City is hosting a giant Eggleston retrospective. It opens on November 7th and will run until January 25, 2009.

So exactly why should we care about Eggleston? He’s one of the great photographers who changed the way people define a picture, and he did it all using colour, which is NOT what self-respecting photographers used back then.

If you happen to be in the area, check out the exhibit, but if not, there are tons of places online where you can read more about William Eggleston and the way he revolutionised the world of photography.

  2. @Jeff: If you can get yourself to NY sometime to see the Eggleston exhibit, that would be pretty awesome too!!
