26 minutes is not enough time to get to know William Eggleston. The DVD is good, well presented and interesting. But it only scratches the surface of this unique photographer. Regret its only 4 stars due to its length. You will need to get a book or two of his images to get a real feel for Mr. Eggleston.

Format: DVD
Eggleston is an iconic photographer and this short documentary captures his vision through interviews with him and people around him. But best of all it follows him as he shoots pictures in locations where others would simply drive by. A little slice of photographic history.

Format: DVD
an average documentary film..
Despite the fact that it attempts to present the photographer and his work , it merely manages to do so thoroughly. It provides very little insight on his complex personality and makes hardly any reference to his influence on modern photography..
Also very short..in length.
Not exactly a disappointment but far below my expectations

Just Too Short 27 July 2009
By Fotomill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have two of Eggleston's DVD. The other one suffers from low quality non-professional looking video. This time the video quality is better and it is good to get to know his thoughts about photography a little more. But it's too short, only 26 minutes long. I don't believe anybody can capture enough information, aspects of a photographer's work for the duration. Too short especially as a commercial product.

Short and sweet 20 Sep 2010
By A photographer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a better video overview of Eggleston and his work than "Life in the Real World". The producers of "Life..." seemed more interested in making Eggleston and his associates and family into a reality TV program than in illuminating his art. "Photographer" emphasizes the pictures and the artist at work. It is illuminating in this regard. The only fault of the video is the brevity. I was left wishing for more.

Eggleston 28 Dec 2010
By John T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD is short but sweet. Not as absorbing as 'IN THE REAL WORLD' but anything on Bill Eggleston is worth watching.
Insightfull and entertaining! 30 May 2014

This was a great view of Eggleston's passion and life. The beauty in the ordinary, simple and often ignored. I recommend this to anyone interested in the world right outside your door.
Good behind the scenese 26 Dec 2013
By T. Veatch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have always been inspired by Eggelston's work after a friend suggested I check out one of his books, 'William Eggelston's Guide.' This short but sweet film gives a brief view of the artist using his own words to describe his work/methods. It's not long enough and I'd much rather meet the man in person for tea or whisky and shoot the s*** while walking around shooting the s*** together.
