William Eggleston and David Lynch

William Eggleston and David Lynch in Munich


Last week I visited several very interesting exhibitions in Munich.

At the Gallery Pfefferle the show with photos from David Lynch and William Eggleston is worth seeing.( 20.03. - 09.05.2009)

The gallery presents some of Eggleston’s most important colour photographs from the seventies. They are printed in the Dye Transfer method, that Eggleston invented himself.

Eggleston depicts scenes from everyday American life in seemingly arbitrary compostions.

The subjects are of a kind that were not considered worth photographing for art photographers: a fridge, a bright red door, cars, a field with colourful flowers. Yet they show us a faithful image of the American South. The intensity of the colour is often overwhelming. Eggleston’s photos give the seeming banality of American everyday life an intense aesthetic quality.

David Lynch’s black and white photos also depict scenes from everyday life.

Where Eggleston mainly shows us the rural Southern States., Lynch depicts urban scenes. Some photos were taken in Germany, such as the photo of the dirty wash basin with a sign “Trinkwasser” (drinking water) above it. Also portraits of an anonymous woman and nudes are included in the show. Lynch’s photos always have a mysterious, uncanny qualitiy no matter if he portays a woman or depicts a dark backyard. Lynch’s photos and drawings were shown last year at a great retrospective in Paris, this is the first exhibition of Lynch’s photos in Germany.


(the catalogue to the Lynch exhibition at the Fondation Cartier in Paris is worth buying:
