"I am at war with the obvious.” (© William EGGLESTON)

William EGGLESTON was born into a rich family in America's South. He was impressed by photographs of Henri CARTIER-BRESSONRobert FRANK und Walker EVANS. From 1965 he experimented with color film. The exhibition 'Photographs by William Eggleston' made him famous and is a milestone in history of photography – the same with the catalog of this exhibition, still available as reprint - 'William Eggleston's Guide'. In the 1970s he made several handmade artist books like 'Flowers', 'Election Eve', 'Morals of Vision' and 'Polaroid SX-70'.
