A Glimpse Inside The William Eggleston Artistic Trust In Memphis, Tennessee

The Eggleston Trust is the holiest of places when it comes to the life's work of legendary photographer William Eggleston. It is the nerve center where his son, Winston Eggleston, manages his father's negatives, commission requests, old cameras, ephemera and more. Before our interview of Eggleston at his home down the road, your first stop is this dim, slightly cramped office where you'll find everything from a camera stolen from a cafe table in Paris and found years later in a pawn shop in Tokyo, to a safe full of the thousands of original negatives containing William Eggleston's most famous images.
