William Eggleston, pioneer in color photography, is unveiling never before seen portraits of rockstar Joe Strummer of The Clash and Hollywood actor Dennis Hopper at the National Portrait Gallery in London. This is the first and most comprehensive exhibition solely dedicated to Eggleston's portraiture work.
Director of NPG Nicolas Cullinan shares, "Eggleston has an uncanny ability to find something extraordinary in the seemingly everyday. Combining well-known works with others previously unseen, this exhibition looks at one of photography’s most compelling practitioners from a new perspective.”
The exhibition will display more than 100 works spanning over several decades. The photographs include people in diners, markets, self-portraits from photobooths, and other vignettes into Eggleston's everyday encounters.
The exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery will be from 21 July until 23 October, 2016.
