Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of National Portrait Gallery  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

William Eggleston is an American photographer famed for his vivid and mysterious images.

This comprehensive exhibition contains 100 works spanning his entire career, from his early beginnings in the 1960s right up to the present day.

Highlights include monumental prints of two of his most legendary works: the artist's uncle, Adyn Schuyler Senior with his assistant Jasper Staples, and Devoe Money in Mississippi.

There will also be some never-before seen vintage black and white prints featuring everyday Americans in diners, petrol stations and markets around Eggleston's hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.
