The photography of William Eggleston

A native Southerner raised on a cotton plantation in the Mississippi Delta, Eggleston has created a singular portrait of his native South since the late 1960s. After discovering photography in the early 1960s, he abandoned a traditional education and instead learned from photographically illustrated books by Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Frank. Although he began his career making black-and-white images, he soon abandoned them to experiment with color technology to record experiences in more sensual and accurate terms at a time when color photography was largely confined to commercial advertising. In 1976 with the support of John Szarkowski, the influential photography historian, critic, and curator, Eggleston mounted “Color Photographs” a now famous exhibition of his work at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. William Eggleston’s Guide , in which Szarkowski called Eggleston’s photographs “perfect,” accompanied this groundbreaking one-person show that established his reputation as a pioneer of color photography. His subjects were mundane, everyday, often trivial, so that the real subject was seen to be color itself. These images helped establish Eggleston as one of the first non-commercial photographers working in color and inspired a new generation of photographers, as well as filmmakers. 

Eggleston has published his work extensively. He continues to live and work in Memphis, and travels considerably for photographic projects. (x)

Going Slower: An Plea towards Telltale

I have created a topic on the official Telltale forums in hope to improve the third season. 

Full post under the cut. Spoilers for the second season of Walking Dead.

UPD: Second write-up about the same topic.

Talking to Gipporex, I realized why the second Walking Dead game season feels much weaker than the first one.

The plot is good. The characters are good. Problem is, we don’t get much time to spend with either. Telltale tries to sprint through both, killing people after a minute of screntime and not giving the events much breathing room.

To give concrete examples (Spoilers!):

I decided to draw my own little headcanon height chart with characters from Dishonored and here is free thing I’d like to say:

1. Billie finally gets to sniff the Outsider.

2. Delilah knows 39 jokes about pathetic dwarves like Daud.

3. Corvo lost control of his life once again.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.

You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”

That was actually a combination of me and the visual effects supervisor and the production designer sitting down and sort of coming up with the biological growth that’s growing all over the cars and what that looks like and the color palette. And we started to look at the nuclear test films from the 1940s of the nuclear blasts and just decided that it would be great if the landscape was not only violent with these creatures, but also the atmosphere. So we decided that it was kind of an eternal nuclear blast except nothing ever really gets obliterated because it’s eternal and it’s constantly going. - director Francis Lawrence on the appearance of Hell; P.D. by Naomi Shohan

  • Me: I can't wait for you to get farther in the series, Nynaeve is a berserker healer
  • Boyfriend: What does that even mean? Does she go around healing people in a rage?
  • Me: Actually, rage-healing is exactly what Nynaeve does
