William Eggleston: Los Alamos, New York

“I only ever take one picture of one thing. Literally. Never two. So then that picture is taken and then the next one is waiting somewhere else.”

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.
