A pioneer of colour photography, William Eggleston has made a career out of making the ordinary extraordinary. Now, for the first time, William Eggleston: Los Alamos, a portfolio consisting of 75 dye-transfer prints from colour negatives made between 1965 and 1974 will be on show through May 28 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
