William Eggleston’s latest monograph features photographs taken during the early 1970s using a large format 5×7 camera. While the book includes imagery typical of the Eggleston oeuvre– streetscapes, parked automobiles, portraits of the strange and disenfranchised–the book also offers never-before-published photographs taken in the nightclubs Eggleston used to frequent.

With it (his camera and portable strobes) Eggleston could shoot in virtual darkness in the juke joints and clubs around Memphis. The portraits are offhand and spontaneous but insistently stark; their brutality is heightened by the absence of color. The portraits have a leveling effect–whether biker or debutante, the people Eggleston photographed are clearly denizens of the same realm. (He) is reminding us: look closely, each of these individuals is subtly different. - Walter Hopps
