Eggleston: Through the Lens Obliquely
Color in photography frequently is distracting, but not in Eggleston’s case. This is not a matter so much of printing technique (though the dye-transfer prints are very good) but of vision. The color adds an important note to Eggleston’s sense of redolence, decadence, and abnormality.
