Format: Cards
William Eggleston is a genius.

The photographs are mostly of people and places in and around Memphis, taken between the early 1970's and 2001 or so. These are images that offer the viewer everything and nothing: Eggleston's photos are never answers to obvious questions, nor are they social or political commentary. They're art. This box of seemingly off-the-cuff casual images is actually a collection of carefully framed and formal portraits. Eggleston's landscapes are lonely ones, suggestive of decay, but his pictures aren't depressing. They throb with an edgy, insistent life even as they portray a world fast moving past whatever he is capturing with his lens. His pictures are witty, even funny sometimes, but never at the expense of his subject. After looking at Eggleston's photographs, you don't see the world quite the same way, which is what makes him a genius. The images in this box include:

the flat facade of a suburban tract house seen through the looming off-kilter frame of a tricycle;

the inside of a small old-fashioned freezer filled with frost-furred boxes of pot pies and cartons of "ice milk";

a doll party on the giant hood of a Cadillac;

a beautiful young woman in profile, standing at an outdoor burger counter, dollar bill clutched in her hand

and 21 others...

The cards themselves are on heavy stock, much heavier than typical postcard stock, so they're a pleasure to shuffle through and hold in your hand. The prints seem to be pretty good (though I have not seen any of these photographs reproduced before, so I don't have anything to compare them to). His photographs lend themselves to this format--it's a pleasure to take them out one by one, juxtapose them in different combinations, interact with them in a way you couldn't if they were in a book.

Terrific price, too...

I am a long time Eggleson fan, and it's great to see this images from the remarkably inventive and influential photographer. Some are classics, and some are rarely seen. Nicely produced.

William Eggleston is a true master of photography and his brilliance and genius surpass that of most photographers. His works enthralls viewers and captures the epitome of Southern life as no other photographer has. This reproduced set is the best of his old and his new. A must for any Eggleston fan.

Ok, so I'm an Eggleston fanboy of sorts. His work speaks to me and he finds the beauty in the mundane and everyday with ease. His work is similar in a way to the work of the 70s new topographers, but it has a lot more heart and soul. The new topo guys had a cold, exacting approaching with a highly political nature to their work, Eggleston's work is almost the polar Opposite of that. He becomes a part of what he photographers and even if it's ugly or boring he somehow sees through that and finds its inherent appeal. This is no critique of post war America, it is a meditative approach to finding the joys in the normal.
This set is great. A wide range of works that represents his vision well. Material is well printed and of a quality paper. This is also probably the cheapest way to own some of Eggleston's work. I say buy it.
