"I am at war with the obvious"

"I am afraid that there are more people than I can imagine who can go no further than apppreciating a picture that is a rectangle with an object in the middle of it, which they can identify. They don't care what is around the object as long as nothing interferes with the object itself, right in the center. Even after the lessons of Winogrand and Friedlander, they don't get it... They want the obvious... I am at war with the obvious" -- William Eggleston

Interesting looking documentaries on Eggleston here and here. I would love to see these.
