William Eggleston, from Black and White to Colour
© William Eggleston / Eggleston artistic Trust

An exhibition that testifies to the great, and overlooked, talent of photographer William Eggleston.

American photographer, William Eggleston glided from black and white photography to colour in the early 70s and introduced a style that is still revered by photographers today. He says of his atmospheric pictures that he isn’t interested in documenting reality and yet when he positions his lens like a fly on the wall or a walking dog, Eggleston shows that there is always a story being told in the banality of everyday life.
