"Some vertical gesture then, the way that anger
Or desire can rip a life apart,
Some wound of color.”
-Robert Hass, from “Time and Materials"
“William Eggleston is a “color” photographer. Here there is also some room for interpretation. Rather than list the possibilities I will just explain directly. Eggleston is associated in such a pronounced fashion with color photography that the uttering of his name immediately brings to mind the word ‘color’.”
How lovely it must be to have your very name bring to mind color.
