    I saw some of his show at LA County Museum and his dye transfer prints are gorgeous. His subject matter is prosaic, but his art is finding beauty in the ordinary.

    Wow.. I cant believe the critique of Eggleston's Tricycle photograph.. Eggleston's color photographs where way before there time.
    He is the godfather of color and his compositions are stunning...

    Your bump reminded me of this thread. I did see the article in the wsj magazine insert. It was a 2 page spread of only this picture blown up of his cameras in that suitcase. What's the point of getting the paper when it's online with a larger article and more pictures and free? Well the print version also mentions when he bought the case he had a carpenter friend outfit it with dividers. It didn't mention if the cameras worked, or if he bought them new and wore them out, or if he even still uses them. Kinda crappy reporting.

    With someone like Eggleston you have to look at a body of work, not just isolated images. He was a trendsetter. Off-the-cuff snapshots with
    a lovely feel for color, which came across with a great deal of charm (or sometimes a sinister twist) when he had them printed as small rich
    dyes transfers. The redux blown-up inkjets just don't have the same feel at all.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
