Summary

In response to an invitation from the Fondation Cartier, William Eggleston has spent three years working on a major photography project on Paris. This series of photographs shows the citys many facets: picturesque and cosmopolitan, sublime and vulgar, humdrum and extraordinary. Harking back to a long tradition in which grand masters of photography such as Eugène Atget and Henri Cartier-Bresson chose this city as their subject, Eggleston engages in a dialogue with his predecessors via the unique photographic style for which he is well known. Published on the occasion of his exhibition at the Fondation Cartier, the publication takes the form of a workbook and places his photographs next to the drawings inspired by them. Presented to the public for the first time, these pieces offer a unique insight into the creative process behind Egglestons work.
