The Democratic Forest

William Eggleston was raised on a cotton plantation in Mississippi and he began to experiment with color photography in the late 1960s, despite the mainstream bias toward black and white photography. This was a gift from Jennifer McCracken New (T’90, L’94), a member of the Nasher Board of Advisors, and Jason New.
