William Eggleston, born 1939 in Memphis (USA), lives and works in Memphis. A pioneer in color photography in the late 60s, he is today internationally acclaimed for the hard-edged and persuasive colors of his photographs of the American South. Having the talent to see splendor in the ordinary, the trivial and the quotidian, and finding compelling harmonies in the most unlikely places, his work is praised for opening our eyes to the world outside our door and to the world we live with, for clarifying our vision, for seeing what is there, however strange, with no prejudice.
