William Eggleston

Another Imagine programme on BBC tonight – William Eggleston. I first saw his work at an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery a few years ago and I was fascinated by the ordinary but enigmatic photographs. One I’ve copied a number of times was simply birds on power cables. But my favourite is Sumner Mississippi 69-70. What is going on here?

The mystery was rather spoiled when they described the background to the picture... no, I won’t let on.
