(c) William Eggleston

‘What have you been photographing here today, Eggleston?’

‘Well, I’ve been photographing democratically,’ I replied.

‘But what have you been taking pictures of?’

‘I’ve been outdoors, nowhere, in nothing.’

‘What do you mean?’

‘Well, just woods and dirt, a little asphalt here and there.’


The afterward to The Democratic Forest is a short, simple text that brings a smile… the whole thing is on the trust site here
