"Looking at pictures with William Eggleston"
Art Review, interview by Fi Churchman
May 9, 2019

"I ask him [William Eggleston] how he thinks his photographs communicate.

I have to use the word decipher because, to view them on the surface is like considering them snapshots, which they are not. ‘ He points to the photograph, ‘This is deeper.’

I sit back again, looking at the sun’s reflection in the shine of the foil pie plate.

‘Do you keep looking at your pictures?’

‘Yes, absolutely.’"
