Artist of 1 portrait
American photographer William Eggleston is best known for capturing everyday suburban life in his home town of Memphis, Tennessee. His sitters include family and friends, but also musicians and artists. A pioneer of colour photography in the late 1960s/early1970s, Eggleston's first solo exhibition of colour prints was at the MoMA in 1976. 40 years later, “William Eggleston: Portraits” at the NPG was the first major exhibition to focus on his portrait photography.
