William Eggleston

i don’t really believe in new year’s resolutions, or their underlying premise that you should commit to enacting major (and presumably positive) change in your life only once a year (and, might i add,  on the tail of 365 previous days that typically don’t leave enough gas in the tank to enact much of anything).

i can, however, get on board with some new year’s inspiration. which is why i made the trek to LACMA a week or so ago to catch the William Eggleston exhibit. a friend had gifted me one of Eggleston’s monograph’s for my 30th under the notion that mr. Eggleston and i seem to see much of the same beauty in the world. the monograph (The Democratic Forest ) is lovely, but didn’t compare to the collection of 50’s, 60’s and 70’s brand nostalgia that lined four sizeable gallery rooms. i proved a fickle lover, falling in and out of love in the time it took to pull my eyes off of one print and lock on to the next.

here, in no particular order, are a few of my more lasting crushes:
