Inspiration Photos

Democratic Eye


“[The Democratic Forest] refers to my method of photographing–the idea that one could treat the Lincoln Memorial and an anonymous street corner with the same amount of care, and that the resulting two pictures would be equal, even though one place is a great monument and the other might be a place you’d like to forget.”

From an interview of William Eggleston by Charles Hagen

Also, selected items featuring Eggleston’s person notebook and the artist playing organ.
