In this era of digital photography and computer manipulation, it's easy to forget just how groundbreaking William Eggleston's early color photographs were. In 1976, when the fine-art police viewed black-and-white as the only legitimate photographic form, Eggleston, a Vanderbilt graduate and Memphis resident, shocked the art world with his one-man show at the Museum of Modern Art — with not just his indulgence in the crass, commercial medium of color photography, but also his ability to transform seemingly banal scenes into stunning, thought-provoking art. And though the glorification of the ordinary has become commonplace in photography, Eggleston's work still stands out for its compositional brilliance. Case in point: his “Red Ceiling,” used on the cover of Big Star's album Radio City and widely regarded as one of his masterworks. (His photographs have graced many an album cover since, for bands such as Primal Scream, Silver Jews, Joanna Newsom and Spoon.) This Frist exhibit features some of his iconic ’70s images, pieces from the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art's permanent collection, and rarely seen photographs from the current century.
