Blue Rope and Red

‘“I am at war with the obvious,” William Eggleston has said, and he set out to prove it by showing the everyday and the ordinary is a startling new light.  More than any other photographer in recent years, Eggleston has expanded the medium’s vocabulary to accept colour and include subjects disregarded by most photographers… Eggleston’s work is not about colour, it is colour.  Just think about [his] image in black-and-white.  It might work, but it is unlikely.’  Jerry Badger, The Genius of Photography, Quadrille Publishing, London, 2007, p. 148
