*Starred Review* Eggleston has been called the father of color photography, by which is meant that he was the first to master color for the kind of insouciant, instantaneous aesthetic that burgeoned in the wake of action painting, the Beats, and Robert Frank’s groundbreaking road photography. The essential Eggleston photo seems to register a stopped instant in the flow of a visual continuum, like a frame from a strip of movie film. What is shown is nothing special, which is why he calls his work democratic, his process one of regarding no one thing in a visual field as more important than any others; he also takes pictures from any and every angle, playing no favorites. Composition is unpremeditated, though southerner Eggleston has quipped that his model is the Confederate flag, and indeed, image after image has a center: the edge of the heel of a canvas shoe in a flash-lit shot under a bed, the clasped hands of two trick-or-treaters on a colorfully crepuscular suburban road, a no-parking sign on a lamppost on a sunny urban street. Besides more than 134 plates, this invaluable retrospective contains stills from Eggleston’s cinema verité videotape Stranded in Canton (1974) and six cogent, jargon-free essays, the best by Eggleston’s longtime writer friend, Stanley Booth. --Ray Olson
