$512.90

About

William Eggleston and John Szarkowski. William Eggleston’s Guide First Edition. Published by Museum of Modern Art, New York 1976. First Edition of this groundbreaking book. Published to coincide with his exhibition, Eggleston was the first photographer to have a one man show of Color photographs at the Museum of Modern Art. As a medium for artistic expression color photography had been overlooked by the establishment until this moment. Designed to echo the format of a photo album or children’s book it is notable for turning away from the traditional catalogue format towards a work of art in itself; in faux leather covers and reminiscent of a story book or photo album the catalogue becomes something loaded with the artist’s intention. Shot between 1969 and 1971 the book unsentimentally depicts the family, friends, people and places of Eggleston’s hometown of Memphis with disarming immediacy. 112 pp with 48 color plates. Essay by John Szarkowski. Extremely rare in excellent condition with only very light fading and minimal foxing to endpapers and colored paper introduction. Measures: H 23 x W 23 x D 1.5 cm.
