The New Yorker reviews William Eggleston

The November 17 issue of The New Yorker has a kind review of the latest photography show at the Whitney, “William Eggleston: Democratic Camera, Photographs and Video, 1961-2008".

As expected from The New Yorker, the review is art word heavy and articulate.

My favorite sentence from the reviewer is:
"Synthetic gorgeousness iconizes pictures that flaunt the nonchalance of snapshots."

I do enjoy Eggleston's work and the review is well done.
