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!
