A friend notified me of a reasonable offer of this book at De Slegte. Ancient and Modern is offers an overview of Eggleston’s work up to the late 1980s. The book was produced as part of a retrospective exhibition of Eggleston’s work at the Barbican Art Gallery in London. The book includes photographs from Eggleston’s travels in Kenya and South Africa/Transvaal that were completely unknown to me. I was also largely unfamiliar with Kiss Me Kracow’s work, made in Germany.
So a nice discovery. Good introductory text by Mark Holborn.
