william eggleston is a memphis-born photographer who is credited by many for establishing color photography as a legitimate artistic medium.  the majority of his photographs were taken during the 70s…i’m really drawn to the color and composition.

“this is beginning to be my new favorite kind of light. it brings out a spectrum that appeals to me, warmer colors that i don’t always notice at other times. it’s like when a thunderstorm moves through and the light changes swiftly from cold to warm.” -william eggleston

These photographs are beautiful. The color of the light in these photographs remind me of all the great times in my life! Like first kisses and walking home from my first softball game!
