Yesterday’s meeting about the U3AC Photo Forum was useful in shaping the programme for the coming year. Whether it will bring anyone nearer to an understanding of William Eggleston remains to be seen. After the meeting I bought a copy of Photography – The Whole Story (Thames and Hudson 2012). It argues that Eggleston’s photography ‘is now accepted as one of the defining bodies of work that began the restitution of colour photography from commerce to art.’ By coincidence I was presented with an Egglestonesque subject today on an early morning walk by Great North Fen, Cottenham.
