William Eggleston’s choice of color photography has been crucial in lending credibility to the medium. However, I think the most interesting aspect of his photography is that he so often focuses on ordinary, one could even say boring, locations and objects. An abandoned gas station, a car that’s given up the ghost… His photographs sometimes make the mundane beautiful, but more importantly they make the mundane meaningful.

No specific dates. 21st century.

I’m finding minimalism very appealing today.
