National Portrait Gallery – William Eggleston: Portraits

William Eggleston, as ever the images are poetic and elusive, the printing and framing of the highest quality. This exhibition was quite possibly one of the most beautiful I have seen, the colors, quality and his beautiful understanding of light creates powerful and poetic images. The main stand out photography for me was this:

I LOVE how everything is dead around her, which highlights the floral on her sofa and dress even more. I love that this image looks set up, the sofa cushions can’t possibly live there, else they would be filthy and rotting.  Not to mention his use of color in this image, his color used in his images always match up to the character in the portrait. This image was displayed very large which made it even more eye catching but also gave the chance to get up and close to the detail and quality to the image, which was a continual theme within all of Egglestons Portraits.
