The most famous photographer to ever exist and still alive today.

still uses a Leica camera with the custom-mounted f0.95 Canon lens, and detests all things digital. He's a prolific artist, who by his own account, has taken over 1.5 million photographs.

Why wont he use digital /p? He is the best photogapher of all time, is it true film just is better?

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.

tl;dr

How much of a drunk do you have to be to be a successful photographer?

I bought that lens in the '90s when it was cheap, the 1.2 as well.

1.2 is massively better in every single way.

My 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.

Wrong again?

If I were wealthy enough, all I shot would be Fuji Provia and scanned by well paid minions by best scanners available
>>
>>4023434
that 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

>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."[1]

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.

His 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.
