The Whitney Museum of American Art is currently showing the first U.S. retrospective show from one of the most influential photographers of all time. William Eggleston is widely recognized as the man that helped shape the form of and acceptance of color photography as an art form with his 1976 solo show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. For this current show, some of his lesser-known works from his rich catalg have been assembled. Both photography and video are represented in this retrospective that spans over 4 decades of his works. This one is without a doubt on my list of exhibitions to catch in the near future. Check inside for more information.
