William Eggleston (Cory's Pick)

My last artist pick is William Eggleston. While he is only tangentially related to what I'm doing right now, I really like his style. He takes pictures of ordinary moments, much like David Hilliard, and makes them significant. He doesn't transform the ordinary to make it interesting, he captures the interesting moments in the ordinary. I really enjoy his portrayal of the world, and think his style aesthetically captures my vision of the "past". There's a good video of his images with some audio from an interview with Eggleston's son at . There are more images too if you're interested. (I can't get the images to display right, so they're coming out pretty cropped.)
