William Eggleston's latest monograph features photographs taken during the early 1970s using a large format 5 X 7 camera. While the book includes imagery typical of the Eggleston oeuvre-streetscapes, parked automobiles, portraits of the strange and disenfranchised-the book also offers never-before-published photographs taken in the nightclubs Eggleston used to frequent.


With it [his camera and portable strobes] Eggleston could shoot in virtual darkness in the juke joints and clubs around Memphis. The portraits are offhand and spontaneous but insistently stark; their brutality is heightened by the absence of color. The portraits have a leveling effect-whether biker or debutant, the people Eggleston photographed are clearly denizens of the same realm. [He] is reminding us: look closely, each of these individuals is subtly different.
