Introduction by Eudora Welty. 150 color plates, selected from thousands photographed in the 1980s. The seqence of images, which begins in Mississippi and ranges through the American South, Pittsburgh, and Berlin, can be read as an "almost autobiographical narrative." But as Eggleston says in his afterword: "I am at war with the obvious."
