The Democratic Forest
by William Eggleston
Publisher's Description
"I am afraid that there are more people than I can imagine who can go no further than appreciating a picture that is a rectangle with an object in the middle of it, which they can identify. They don't care what is around the object as long as nothing interferes with the object itself, right in the centre. Even after the lessons of Winogrand and Friedlander, they don't get it . . . They want something obvious. The blindness is always apparent when someone lets slip the word `snapshot.' Ignorance can always be covered by `snapshot.' The word has never had any meaning. I am at war with the obvious."--William Eggleston, from the Afterword. Eggleston's first book in some years is beautifully printed, provocatively designed, and a significant new collection from an important photographer.
