WILLIAM EGGLESTON

When first making color photos, Eggleston tried not to be aware whether or not he had color or black-and-white film in his camera. The earliest prints were developed by Kodak (as snapshot-like tiny prints), a selection of which are offered here. Many are unique. All are signed. Each is an amazing work of art.

All dates are "circa." In the current retrospective at the Whitney, this piece is identified as being from the "Los Alamos" Projet amd dated as early as 1965. Color shifts in the negative or transparency render their "modern" print as saffron, rather than the actual lemony yellow seen here.
