"One measure of William Eggleston's gift is that it's fairly impossible to spend time with his pictures without experiencing a kind of contagious, recharged awareness of the richness of the visible world.
Extended exposure to his photos is likely to recondition the way you see and the way you think about seeing. Everything is worth looking at, the pictures say, and worth photographing...
Gradually, it might bear in upon you that Eggleston's true subject is simply and inexhaustibly the nature of perception."
"The trouble is — whatever it is about pictures, photographs, it's just about impossible to follow up with words. They don't have anything to do with each other. I think you could say that it has nothing to do with words. What is there to talk about? Art — or whatever we call it — you can love it and appreciate it, but you can't really talk about it. Doesn't make any sense."
