lacma + eggleston


William Eggleston is one of my favorite photographers. His snap-shot-cultural-documentation-sometimes-sloppy-very-saturated prints have inspired me for a long time. The show at lacma was sort of underwhelming, but his books are a good source of inspiration.

    sorry to hear it was underwhelming. hes a fave of mine too. i cant believe ive not seen the show – though i did go to a signing of his at LACMA when the show opened, so that was nice.

    yeah, it was weird the way they decided to break up the work and then also, there wasn’t that much to see even though there were 6 rooms. I saw a better show in San Francisco maybe 10 years ago (omg I’m old). Still love him though.

    I saw this at the Whitney. It was just so great to see them in person. What app are you using for the Polaroid looking images? They are great!
