William Eggleston
[Photographer, b. 1939, Memphis, Tennessee, lives in Memphis.]

 I want to be clear about something. The artist… if the thing is in that person to do, it will find a way out. Doesn’t matter where you plant it. 
 I don’t think about what camera I should use that much. I just pick up the one that looks nicest on the day. 
 Whether a photo or music, or a drawing or anything else I might do—it’s ultimately all an abstraction of my peculiar experience. 
 I am afraid that there are more people than I can imagine who can go no further than appreciating a picture that is a rectangle with an object in the middle of it, which they can identify.
