William Eggleston at the Whitney Museum of American Art

You can always tell a William Eggleston photograph. It's the one in color that hits you in the face and leaves you confused and happy, and perhaps convinces you that you don't understand photography nearly as well as you thought you did.

To view "William Eggleston: Democratic Camera, Photographs and Video, 1961-2008," at the Whitney, is to be pummelled by eccentric beauty, and to wonder about it. A pertinaciously slumming aristocrat from Memphis, Tennessee, and points south, Eggleston, now sixty-nine years old, is one of the great Romantic originals of camerawork.
