Catalogue of the exhibition "William Eggleston, American Color," which was presented at the IMS-Rio de Janeiro between March 14 and June 28 of 2015, brings together 124 images of the American photographer William Eggleston.
William Eggleston is one of the most important artists in the history of photography. His vibrant and most famous images depict day-to-day life in small cities and suburbs of the American south, constructing an inventory of American culture in the 1960s and ‘70s. Eggleston opened new ground for photography by combining a focus on the symbols of modernization (roads, cars, supermarkets, billboards, shopping malls, parking lots, fashion), a particular use of color saturation and a diaristic approach while documenting friends, family members and anonymous characters.
