The Perfect Print

I have been coveting this William Eggleston photo since I saw it two years ago. What a kick-ass, bejewled bouffant!

I love Eggleston's work - he just gets it, and makes me ache for something that no longer exists.

Eudora Welty, on Eggleston: "The extraordinary, compelling, honest, beautiful and unsparing photographs all have to do with the quality of our lives in the ongoing world: they succeed in showing us the grain of the present, like the cross-section of a tree.... They focus on the mundane world. But no subject is fuller of implications than the mundane world."
