This is my favourite portrait from the William Eggleston Portraits exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Taken in 1970, it’s got a nostalgic, yet timeless feel. Maybe that’s the sun-soaked colour quality, Eggleston’s signature, that reminds me of oh so many childhood summers. I expect to see it heavily referenced by designers, photographers and creative directors over the next few months.
William Eggleston Portraits is at the National Portrait Gallery until 23rd October 2016.
