William Eggleston

While my lovely & talented Mom was visiting in May, we spent a day at The Art Institute of Chicago, exploring both the Matisse & the William Eggleston exhibits. I found the Matisse paintings, drawings & sculptures full of history, exuberance, life & color.  But, even weeks later, I can’t get the Eggleston photographs out of my mind.

I have always found beauty in everyday objects and people.  So does he.

His composition is second to none & his play on proportions is brilliant.

He also has a magical ability to catch amazing lighting.  I am never so lucky with my amateur candid photos.  But, I think we see beauty in most of the same things & I think that’s special.  This was my Mom’s favorite photo:

Beauty in a reflection.  Awesome!
