If you come to Paris between September 11 and December 21, 2014, and you are a photographs fan, this exhibition «William Eggleston, From black and white to color» is a can’t-miss this Fall, at the Fondation Henri-Cartier-Bresson (the name of one the greatest French photographer).

More than a hundred black and white photos are shown for the first time by his 75-year-old photographer, William Eggleston, an American from Memphis!  These are photographs taken back in the day, in supermarkets, gas stations and bars.

His one rule: putting his camera on the ground and take one picture. And that’s it, that’s one photo-shoot for him.

Later in his life, he started to take the same kind of pictures, the daily life ones, but in colour this time -he is one of the pioneers of color photography in the US. These are famous thanks to the exhibition in New York at the MoMa in 1976.

Why is it worth it? First, this exhibition tells you the story of how colour photos change the history of photography. Then, it also perfectly portrays the American way of life in the early 70s.

More on the exhibiton over there.
