William Eggleston was born in Memphis, Tennessee and grew up in a wealthy family in Mississippi. He is considered a pioneer of modern color photography. He achieved early fame with a one-man show at the New York Museum of Modern Art. The show's title was unpretentious and to the point: "Color Photographs by William Eggleston." The photographs, which were taken in Memphis and Mississippi, showed everyday motifs as well as friends and family of the photographer. Prints were made using Eggleston's characteristic dye transfer process.
With his documentary William Eggleston in the Real World, filmmaker Michael Almereyda poses a fundamental question to the renowned photographer: What does it mean to see the world so differently that "common" images are converted into unforgettable photos, "I like to photograph democratically," William Eggleston has said - a quote that doesn't quite account for the unique range and scope of his work, an ongoing project to describe the unreasonable beauty of "ordinary" contemporary life.
