A part of my submission to this summer's Utata Big Project, "Homage". The subject of this homage being William Eggleston.
When I decide to homage Eggleston I thought he would be the easiest of the 3 photographers I chose for this project. I was both right and wrong. The scooter photo was easy. I made the connection between Eggleston's tricycle and modern scooters, then went out and shot a scooter at the first attempt. But Eggleston was also the hardest of my 3 homages. Making that connection meant digging a little deeper into his pysche. It came in a flash of inspiration for the scooter but needed more work for these other 3 photos. So I was also wrong, as wrong as an empty unit in a modern retail park. Eggleston was a difficult choice.
