William Eggleston

We spent last weekend in Chicago and spent some time in the Art Institute on Saturday. We saw an exhibit of William Eggleston's photos. He is known for making dye-transfer prints and introducing color to fine art photography. One of his more famous photos is this shot of a tricycle in his hometown of Memphis.

As I looked around at other prints that I hadn't seen before, I was reminded of a few pictures I have taken over the last few months. For what it's worth, below are pictures I took of Eggleston's prints followed by my own photos.
