At the end of the 1950s William Eggleston began to photograph around his home in Memphis using black-and-white 35mm film. Fascinated by the photography of Henri Cartier- Bresson, Eggleston declared at the time: I couldnt imagine doing anything more than making a perfect fake Cartier- Bresson. Eventually Eggleston developed his own style which later shaped his seminal work in coloran original vision of the American everyday with its icons of banality: supermarkets, diners, service stations, automobiles and ghostly figures lost in space. From Black and White to Color includes some exceptional as yet unpublished photographs, and displays the evolution, ruptures and above all the radicalness of Egglestons work when he began photographing in color at the end of the 1960s. Here we discover similar obsessions and recurrent themes as present in his early black-and-white work, including ceilings, food, and scenes of waiting, as well as Egglestons unconventional croppingsall definitive traits of the photographer who famously proclaimed, I am at war with the obvious.
