William Eggleston

The Mystery of the Everyday

28 September to 28 January 2024

William Eggleston (1939, Memphis, Tennessee, USA) is a living legend of photography. In 1976 the MoMa (New York) organised a solo exhibition of his work, making him the first photographer to have a large-scale colour photograph exhibited in a museum. With other greats of contemporary photography such as Gary Winogrand and Lee Friedlander, Eggleston is part of a generation of photographers whose work in the 1970s liberated photography from many of the rules and restrictive concepts of the medium, one of the most important of which was that art photography could only be art photography if it was in black and white. William Eggleston. The mystery of the ordinary is one of the most extensive exhibitions to date in Spain on this exceptional photographer.
