Even before he was thrust into the spotlight in 1976 when he garnered a one-person show at New York's Museum of Modern Art, Eggelston was hailed as one of the pioneersAperhaps the pioneerAof color art photography. This survey, published on the occasion of his winning the prestigious Hasselblad Award, will confirm his reputation among admirers and win new converts to his deceptively straightforward photographs of the everyday. The book brings together 112 pictures made between 1967 and 1996 with an interview, a couple of short essays, and biographical and bibliographical appendixes. The subject matter here is almost exclusively his trademark images of the people, townscapes, and found still lifes of Memphis, TN, and northern Mississippi. The book's modest size (9.5" x 9.5"), simple presentation (small-format images are centered amid plenty of white space), and beautiful printing on matt paper appropriately evoke equal parts family album and gallery wall. Recommended for all libraries interested in the American photographic tradition and even for small libraries in the region.AEric Bryant, "Library Journal"
