A word about color. Color is absolutely crucial to his vision, it is part of why these images appear a bit unreal. Almost all the images in the show were dye transfer, a process that is dying now as the last reserves of the dyes and chemicals are being used up. Kodak stopped making the materials in 1994. There are a number of master printers who, at that time, stocked up on the materials and froze them. As every day goes by, these frozen supplies are being exhausted. Looking at these images up close, and being able in the show to compare them to a few images he had included that used inkjet as their medium, it became clear to me what a difference the dye process made and how important it was to these images. Eggleston calls dye transfer ‘seductive,’ and I think that is a good word for it. The colors were bold yet subtle at the same time, and screen images just cannot reproduce the visceral experience of seeing them in the flesh. ()

Uma das suas obras mais conhecidas realizadas pelo processo "Dye-transfer", "The Red Ceiling", também conhecida como "Greenwood", Mississippi, 1973.

The godfather of colour photography, William Eggleston, inspired a generation – from David Lynch to Juergen Teller. As the 73-year-old from Memphis is honoured by the Sony World Photography Awards, and Tate Modern open a permanent exhibition of his work, Michael Glover pays tribute to his genius plus fans, critics and fellow artists put questions to him.
