By Phillip Prodger
With an appreciation by Sofia Coppola

This exhibition book features a variety of images of the people Eggleston has encountered during his long career. Some of the images are familiar, many of them previously unseen, all of them distinctively Eggleston. This book also includes a new interview with the photographer that provides a fresh perspective on one of the medium’s most influential practitioners.
