New York: Museum of Modern Art, 1976. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's textured cloth, spine and upper board gilt, color photo inset to upper board.
48 color plates of people, interiors, buildings and landscapes of the American South, published on the occasion of Eggleston's one-man show at MoMA, the museum's first devoted to a color photographer. With an essay by influential photo critic, curator and MoMA Director of Photography John Szarkowski: "To me it seems that the pictures reproduced here are about the photographer's home, about his place, in both important meanings of that word. One might say about his identity. If this is true, it does not mean that the pictures are not also simultaneously about photography." Faint toning to edges of endpapers, light soiling to photo inset to upper board. Near fine. Item #21
