About William Eggleston

William Eggleston (American b. 1939) is an American 
photographer who has created a singular portrait of his native South over the last forty years. After discovering photography in the early 1960s, Eggleston abandoned a traditional education and instead learned from photographically illustrated books by Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Frank. Although he began his career making black-and-white images, he soon transitioned to experimentation with color technology to record experiences in more sensual and accurate terms at a time when color photography was largely confined to commercial advertising. These images helped establish Eggleston as one of the first non-commercial photographers working in color and inspired a new generation of photographers, as well as filmmakers. Eggleston has published his work extensively and continues to live and work in Memphis.
