Format: Hardcover
Extraordinary vision as an artist....right along the lines of Eggleston, Winnogrand, and Friedlander. This book is about fine art color photography, not your typical National Geographic obvious photo's. It is about seeing....there is much that is left to be said and done in photography, Huger Foote like his mentor William Eggleston is well on his way to saying things from a different perspective. Huger Foote apparently like many great artists "feeds" off of other great artists to produce a way of seeing that is simply brilliant. He too, like Eggleston, "is at war with the obvious".

Format: Hardcover
Huggie Foote (a childhood friend of mine) has a way of seeing that is always compelling. His works look equally inspired by Eggleston, Van Gogh, and the Green Fairy of Absinthe and his oversaturation of color have in turn shaped other expressive media, notably the film Amelie (Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet had the idea of oversaturating the color film stock of Amelie's ordinary life after viewing an exhibition of Foote's work in London).

Foote's subject matter are a happy mixture of the accidental, undistinguished, and contextually bizarre architecture and shapes found about our childhood home of Memphis. His search has brought him close to the multi-faceted soul of the town: originally a real estate development, then a port, then an agricultural hub, now a crossroads for logistics. Everything that has washed upon its shores or fled to its lights and then been abandoned is chronicled here: for decay is as prominently featured as the active and renewed.

A wonderful book of beautiful photographs which inspires you to see the world in a way that refreshes your soul and makes the ordinary transcendent. Only a gifted artist who has found his medium can ever achieve such beauty. Few artists in history ever truly find their match. Foote has found his, we eagerly await more of his work.

This photographer sees the extraordinary in the seemingly ordinary and possesses an uncanny frame of reference towards all things, as is evident in every picture of this page-turning book.
