The American photographer William Eggleston (born 1939) emerged in the early 1960s as a pioneer of modern color photography. Now, fifty years later, he is arguably its greatest exemplar. This exhibition features a landmark gift to The Met by Jade Lau of the artist's most notable portfolio, Los Alamos. Comprising seventy-five dye transfer prints from color negatives made between 1965 and 1974, the series has never been shown in its entirety in New York City and includes the artist's first color photograph (Untitled, Memphis, 1965) of a young clerk pushing a train of shopping carts at a supermarket in Memphis, Tennessee.
