>>4022699average /p/oster right here
>>4022799>>4022790>Top button undone, glass of wine with icecubes, the dude is chill.
>>4022691When you are that old, there is absolutely no reason to learn a new workflow.
>>4022691nah, Uncle is more famous \m/
He has always been an insufferable arrogant twat. I am an old guy who remembers him well back in the day. And no just because he does not like digital does not make film better. It just proves he is too lazy, or stupid to adapt to a new medium. Just stop worshiping other photographers, it is pathetic.
>>4022699also ice in wine lmao
>>4023239>ice in wineCan't unsee
>>4022691tl;drHow much of a drunk do you have to be to be a successful photographer?
>>4022691I bought that lens in the '90s when it was cheap, the 1.2 as well.1.2 is massively better in every single way.
yall need jesus
>>4023239>He doesn't drink tinto de veranoAbsolute plebeian sub-human
>>4023376>shitty spanish red and sodaFuck anon you’re so inspired
>>4023387>and sodaI repeat: Absolute shit-tasted pygmy nigger
>>4023395Lmao you drink table wine mixed with sprite, as an adult.
>>4023397Learn the recipe then talk back, grasshopper griller
>>4023393Out of my was, assholes!
>>4023399My aunt is a raging alcoholic and in austria it is a habbit by the poor to drink red wine mixed with coke. Not the expensive Coca Cola, mind you, and neither the expensive wine, obiously, but the one that comes in a Tetra pack not in a flask.No idea if that is a thing outside euroland.
>>4022691>still uses a LeicaWRONG! in 2019 he switched to polaroid>https://steidl.de/Books/Polaroid-SX-70-0819315659.html
>>4023432>and containing the only photos he made in this medium.Wrong again?
>>4022691If I were wealthy enough, all I shot would be Fuji Provia and scanned by well paid minions by best scanners available
>>4023434that was his last OC book so i guess he never went back to Leica, his 2021 book is just repost of photos from 1969 to 1974, he probably has dementia so polaroid makes sense as even babies can use them
>>4023428Box wine and Sprite is more popular here. Austrialians call it goon and have a number of mixers they make as well.
>>4023432wait, isi's last book is all instant photos too.Has non-instant photography jumped the shark?
>>4023399Why would I want to learn some peasant recipe anon?
>>4023432>yet another meme from (((steidl)))why the fuck do i want all that empty space, fucking hell.
>>4023520Cause you're already a faggot browsing 4channel. May as well make it obvious.
>>4023850Sorry no one cares about your poor person summer drink.
>>4023854So like I said, perfect for you then. You must be a poorfag LARPer if you're interacting with me at all lmfao
>>4022700>William Eggleston was born in Memphis, Tennessee and raised in Sumner, Mississippi. His father was an engineer and his mother was the daughter of a prominent local judge. As a boy, Eggleston was introverted; he enjoyed playing the piano, drawing, and working with electronics. From an early age, he was also drawn to visual media and reportedly enjoyed buying postcards and cutting out pictures from magazines.At the age of 15, Eggleston was sent to the Webb School, a boarding establishment. Eggleston later recalled few fond memories of the school, telling a reporter, "It had a kind of Spartan routine to 'build character'. I never knew what that was supposed to mean. It was so callous and dumb. It was the kind of place where it was considered effeminate to like music and painting." Eggleston was unusual among his peers in eschewing the traditional Southern male pursuits of hunting and sports, in favor of artistic pursuits and observation of the world. Nevertheless, Eggleston noted that he never felt like an outsider. "I never had the feeling that I didn't fit in," he told a reporter, "But probably I didn't."Eggleston attended Vanderbilt University for a year, Delta State College for a semester, and the University of Mississippi for about five years, but did not complete any degree. Nonetheless, his interest in photography took root when a friend at Vanderbilt gave Eggleston a Leica camera. He was introduced to abstract expressionism at Ole Miss by visiting painter Tom Young. ???

>>4022691His work is uninspired and derivative. He habitually chops off body parts, can't hold a camera level, and often forces the viewer to hunt around the photograph in a desperate search for the intended subject. But, his pictures retain that old tymey feel that hipsters and douchebags seem to like, and have always seemed to like, so his work lingers along to this day.
sweet Terry outtake
>>4023432jesus christ that bookimagine paying 75€ to get postage stamp-sized snapshits that look like random crap from /r/analog
>>4022691this boomer is a true legend,'Sorry We Are Not Sorry' by William Eggleston is basrd!!!!!
>>4023841Because that's how big a polaroid picture is
>>4030826Is Harmony Korine talented? Still trying to figure if he is crazy or not.
>>4042616are films projected on a match box sized screen, you giant homo?
Whoever keeps bumping this thread, fuck off already - Jesus Christ, learn to sage.
>>4022691>most famous photographerwho?
>>4023857>his mother was the daughter of a prominent local judgeseriously? you can't join dots?
>>4023857>Parents with connections>Fail at work>Become an artistAnything you shit out is art worth 10k+ a piece if your parents get the others to say so.
>>4023432I am suprised he can shoot with anything. He looked pretty frail in last vidya with him that I've seen. https://youtu.be/k4k1m2P94Oo
>>4042632>replying on a photographer boarddeluxefaggy
>>4022691when i met him a few years ago he didn't mention any camera during our talks maybe he's onto something
>>4045872>when i met himtell more
>>4045872>>4048331also, did he crit your snaps? what did he say
He embraces everything that's not modern because he grew up in the Deep Old South of the Jim Crow era.
>>4048336Doubt such person would like to have Terry's attention or choose to live in California then
>>4022691a true hero!
>>4022691>>The most famous photographer to ever exist and still alive today.Uhm, no, but he is very good. Great eye for colour and that's pretty much all he photographs. Great stuff.
he is my niggahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jZ_HkaTXh8&ab_channel=theradpho
>>4050827I watchd it a few years ago. I liked it. People talking about art is always cringy, but watching him shoot was great. Anyone who thinks he photographs mundane subjects is fucking clueless. It should be obvious the things in the photos are completely irrelevant. Who the fuck is dumb enough to think the light bulb is the subject here?
>>4051068Horribly framed but nice colour composition, would be pretty cool if he combined both more often and in more interesting instances.
>>4051070You can like them or not ofc, it's all personal opinions, but his subject is always colour. It's all they are. I like them. Is this a great photo of a car? Hell no. Is it a nice photo? Oh, yes. It is to me.
>>4051075>Is it a nice photo?That one is a cool composition with tons of lines going to the horizon, not really in the same league as the light bulb snap.This one is also decent, the colours, the framing and the thematic contrast with the skies is there. Is the small print worth 20 grand because it says Eggleston? that's another story.[EXIF data available.

>>4051078I agree with the points made in the discussion however I always cringe a bit when people say that art is not worth what it being bought for. Today the processus of making art is very often done without the idea that the piece should worth a certain amount of money. The artists just does what he wants to do. Of course we got to pay the bill but most art is made by the artist to express something, not to match a money sum. What a piece of art is worth, is way more linked to how famous is the name of the artist, and scarcity of similar pieces by this artist. Trying to link the price of art and the appreciation you have of it is, to me, a misunderstanding of art but also of capitalism, in which something is worth what people will pay for it.
>>4051078I had not seen this one. Awesome. He does seem to like a bit of surrealism. Art market is art market. I try not to think about it. Is rhein2 worth millions?
