William Eggleston: For Now
Texts by Michael Almereyda, Lloyd Fonvielle, Kristine McKenna, Greil Marcus, and Amy Taubin
For Now is the result of filmmaker Michael Almereyda’s year-long search through the Eggleston archives, a remarkable collection of heretofore unseen images spanning four decades of work by one of our seminal artists. Unusual in its concentration on family and friends, the book highlights an air of offhand intimacy, typical of Eggleston and typically surprising.
