More Eggleston in Town

Copyright William Eggleston Trust

Aside from the big retrospective at LACMA, two additional Eggleston shows are here.

On view now across the street from LACMA at Edward Cella Gallery is William Eggleston: American Photographer. Images here. There's also a talk this Saturday at 4pm:

Join independent curator and photographic historian, Carole Thompson for an overview of William Eggleston: American Photographer as she presents her personal and unique insights into the work and life of photographer William Eggleston.

Carole Thompson is a private art dealer with a specialty in American Photographers and Painters of the 20th Century. A former curator at the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, Thompson published the first catalogue raisonné of Eggleston's multiples. Her clients include the J. Paul Getty Museum, LACMA, SFMoMA, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art among others.

Opening next Saturday the 13th from 6-8pm at DNJ, Eggleston: On the Road presents images he took at the perfect location for his work, Graceland, as well as images from Democratic Forest. What could be a better fit?
