William Eggleston’s Atmospheric Disturbances
The last gallery exhibition I saw in 2022 stunned me. “The Outlands” is a series of large color photographs of the American South made by William Eggleston between 1970 and 1973, when he was in his 30s. The title comes from a family name on a metal sign outside a suburban Memphis home featured in one of the pictures. But it could almost be a name for the United States, both then and today.
