London’s David Zwirner gallery recently opened the doors to “2 ¼”, a new exhibition spotlighting the work of legendary American photographer William Eggleston. The series of square format images were taken in California and the Deep South during the 1970s and blur the line between landscape and portraiture.
The photographs feature everyday scenes of individuals, cars, parking lots and local stores and businesses, which the gallery describes as speaking “to the uniformity of postwar material culture while revealing the distinct character and idiosyncrasies of the people and places that populate the American landscape.”
Take a look around “2 ¼” in the gallery above. The series of photographs is on display at David Zwirner in London until June 1.
