William Eggleston has moved through a number of different styles and subject matter over the course of his career. He began in B&W in 1957, photographing things directly overhead and people at parties. He then transitioned into color and expanded to industrial scenes. Throughout the evolution of his career, the one thing that has distinguished his work is his ability to make a mundane scene interesting.

The 8 images that I shot and printed look very different from the 8 I've posted below, partly because I was limited by subject material and B&W. The main thing that I tried to emulate was his ability to spot a bit of color, a funky expression, symmetry, strange light, etc, and use it to make a boring moment worth photographing and sharing.
