For Lucia, Series by William Eggleston

Comprised of twenty-three never-before shown archival prints, For Lucia, Series offers a glimpse into Eggleston’s former stomping grounds in the Mississippi Delta. The title of the exhibition references Lucia Birch, Eggleston’s mistress and collaborator. Remembered as a tumultuous affair, as told to the writer Richard B. Woodard, Eggleston stated, “Lucia and I have shot at each other several times. She once aimed a .410 shotgun at me. Those pictures of mine on the walls aren’t there just because she likes them. They’re covering up bullet holes, some of them.” The daughter of a social activist lawyer, Burch was thought to be an important muse for Eggleston, as stated by Mary Lindsay, “She was a blazing talent. She really pushed him past his greatness.”

Largely credited with legitimizing color photography as a fine art form, William Eggleston has inspired generations of photographers, artists and filmmakers through the course of his fifty-year career. As Sofia Coppola stated regarding his influence on her debut feature The Virgin Suicides, “It was the beauty of the banal details that was inspirational.”
