Free Friday: William Eggleston

 

My favourite photographer is William Eggleston.

The American has an outstanding way of capturing real life and making it look like a film. His use of colour in the 60s and 70s revolutionised colour photography, making it a recognised form of contemporary art.

His shots remind me that every little thing has a story to tell. Like the wonky license plate on the car, how many moments lead it to being that way. Everything has been created by someone, everything item we see around us has been part of someone’s story.
