Twin Palms Publishers sent over this wonderful book of photos by Americna photographer William Eggleston called For Now and I’ve been enjoying it very much. To start off, Eggleston has always been one of my favorite photographers for his ability to extract the weirdness out of the everyday object/scene/place and this new and never-before-seen collection of photos is a great addition to his already extensive line of public works.
The selects in this book are the culmination of film-maker Michael Almereyda’s year-long exploration through the William Eggleston archives — photographs that he took more for personal reasons or ones that just never made the cut previously by other editors (including himself) — and it really allows the viewer to get inside the head of one of the most important contemporary photographers of the day.
For Now is available now for just over $40. Pick one up and see for yourself (or have a look at some pages below first).
