This is a portrait of William Eggleston – one of my favorite photographers. It was shot by his cousin Maude Schuyler Clay. Raised in Mississippi and now living in Memphis, Eggleston is one of the most celebrated modern artists, and his work hangs in major museums all over the world. But his clothing style is very traditional and a rejection of all that is trendy and hip. He opts instead to dress like a gentleman. In this portrait, he is wearing a tweed jacket with a faint camel windowpane pattern and 3/2 roll over a gray wool crew neck sweater (probably a Shetland knit) and a blue candy stripe oxford cloth button down. Eggleston is the epitome of a natty dresser! I believe he is holding a Leica M4 camera – the same model used by Henri Cartier Bresson. A pair of smart tortise shell glasses complete his timeless look.
