Field of cotton expressed as an abstract texture in this color print by William Eggleston (b. 1939).

American William Eggleston grew up on a cotton plantation in the Deep South of the Mississippi Delta, and for the past half-century has captured the vernacular vision of the region in a series of photographs elevating common and colloquial subject matters as high art. The 1976 solo exhibition of Eggleston’s work mounted by New York’s Museum of Modern Art established the artist as one of the fathers of modern color photography.

While his early bodies of work were shot in black and white media, the artist is known for his exploration of color photography, and is considered the 20th century’s most influential color photographer.
