“While Eggleston’s style may not have changed for Paris, I think the principles have intensified over the years. Compared to his earlier work these images are more tightly focused on the visual details which catch his eye, cutting out any context almost completely. His ‘democratic’ approach is unchanged: classical marble scultpure gets gets the same treatment as a garish, hyper-colour merry-go-round. I think the greatest strength here is his mastery of colour, although the saturation of his early dye-transfer prints is replaced with more muted tones.” Marc Feustel (http://www.marcfeustel.com/eyecurious/william-eggleston-paris?rq=william%20eggleston)
