WILLIAM EGGLESTON: THE LOUISIANA PROJECT

Brooks Museum / 1934 Poplar Ave. July 21 - October 24th

William Eggleston

Memphis artist William Eggleston, a pioneer of color photography and one of the foremost photographers in the world, is known for his vivid images of everyday life in the South. This exhibition presents selections from his Louisiana Project portfolio (1980-81) that highlight two important characteristics of Eggleston’s work: his careful attention to subject matter and his craftsmanship in carefully framing color and light to create a sense of drama around everyday objects.
