I have been seriously turned off by a comment that I read of Meyerwitz' talking about Eggleston's first solo show at MOMA in which he expressed that Eggleston was a mediocre black and white photographer until he saw Meyerowitz' work and began to "copy" him. He also went on to say that Eggleston only got the show because Meyerowitz didn't have a lot of money to make prints and Eggleston apparently was rich. These comments and a video I saw of him shooting recently (as well as his attitudes on his 9/11 book) have completely turned me off to his work. He doesn't seem like a very pleasant person, at least by my definitions.
