Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale
William began experimenting with color photography in the early 1960s; by 1972, he had discovered a commercial way of printing photos. His new printing technique was called dye transfer.
Despite the awards, people did not appreciate his work and success in photography back then. His first exhibition received negative reviews, but his critics started appreciating his work and color photography as a whole.
Later in his eighties and nineties, Eggleston's work started bringing him some renown, and he was invited into the film industry. Film directors began asking him to take photos on movie sets. Some renowned directors who invited him to shoot photos include John Houston and Gus Van Sant.
In general, Eggleston was the first artist to use dye transfer printing and use it to make art.
