Tyler Monson ran across this in the picture-frame aisle at Target. "Obviously a Nikon F (Photomic T) but note the position of the model's finger—on the top of the shutter advance lever and not the shutter release next to it! Thought it might amuse you." Always. Prop-meisters, do thy homework!
Mark Kinsman made it down to the opening of the big Eggleston show at the Art Institute of Chicago. While waiting in line to get his copy of William Eggleston's Guide autographed, he took this shot of Eggleston signing a picture. The show runs until May 23 in the new Modern Wing, and I will definitely be going.
If you don't have the Guide, you ought to. Love it or hate it (and I'll warn you, there are those who hate it), it's one of the two or three dozen most important and influential photography books of the past sixty years. When you limit the category to photography in color, it moves into the top dozen. Eggleston, the apotheosis of the snapshot, edited by Szarkowski, the most astute and astringent of art photography's connoisseurs. A happy confluence and one of those books I treasure. The original is worth $400 now, give or take, but the "facsimile" edition is just as good to look at, and you can buy yours clean and new and untouched, for now.
