Reviews

"Eggleston never diminishes what he sees but somehow enlarges both the momentous and the trivial. . . . Each photograph is freighted with untold stories."--Adrian Searle, Guardian
"The abundance of recent collections of Eggleston's work does not diminish the allure of this one. . . . Some of the pictures are extremely well known . . . others are less so: page after page of riveting, often untitled character studies. . . . If you're curious about Eggleston . . . this book is not a bad place to start."--Luc Sante, New York Times Book Review ("Top Photography Books")
"[Eggleston] brings his quirky and discerning eye to portraiture."--Jack Crager, American Photo ("Best Photography Books")
"Intimate and unguarded. . . . Eggleston's photographs keep you looking and guessing."--Ann Hermes, Christian Science Monitor
"[Eggleston] brings a discerning eye to portraiture."--Jack Crager, American Photo ("Best Photography Books of the Year')
"Eggleston's portraits . . . always look like movie stills, and you feel you've seen the movie. It's color that sets the scene, compels you to look--something has happened, or is about to happen. It is not surprising that Eggleston's cinematic painterliness has long been a favorite of film directors such as Sofia Coppola, Gus Van Sant, David Lynch, and the Coen brothers."--Gini Alhadeff, New York Review of Books
