William Eggleston: Polaroid SX-70


William Eggleston: Polaroid SX-70

"The godfather of colour photography has released a new photo book, shedding light on a little-known facet of his output—his sumptuously sun-drenched Polaroids.” –Daisy Woodward, AnOther

This book is a facsimile of an album of Eggleston's Polaroids assembled by the photographer himself, and containing the only photos he made in this medium. Consisting of 56 images taken with the Polaroid SX-70 (the now cult camera produced between 1972 and 1981) and hand-mounted in a black leather album also produced by the company, Polaroid SX-70 is the first publication of Eggleston's Polaroids.

The gloriously mundane subjects of these photos—a Mississippi street sign, a telephone book, stacked crates of empty soda bottles—is familiar Eggleston territory, but, fascinatingly, all of these Polaroids were taken outdoors. They are rare records of Eggleston's strolls or drives in and around Mississippi, complementing the majority of his work made with color negative film or color slides, and showing his flair for photo-sequencing in book form.

Featured image is reproduced from William Eggleston: Polaroid SX-70, Steidl's superb facsimile of the small black leather album the photographer created to collect the only Polaroids he ever made. Mississippi street lamps, billboards, parking lots and gas stations are among the subjects in the photographs, all of which were made outdoors. "The images may be instant, but they’re as masterfully considered as the rest of Eggleston’s output," Dais Woodward writes in Another Magazine, "proof, if any was needed, of his innate ability to elevate anything to high art by the mere angling of a lens." continue to blog
