William-Eggleston-Stranded-in-Canton-1

Em 1974, o fotógrafo William Eggleston viajou pelo sul dos Estados Unidos documentando, com uma Sony Porta-pak, seus encontros com os personagens de Memphis e Nova Orleans. Em uma sequência do filme tiros são disparados, em outras meninos matam galinhas e um jovem de barba com feições de anjo divaga sobre estar ‘stranded in Canton’, uma expressão para estar bêbado ou sob o efeito de drogas.

In 1974, photographer William Eggleston’s travelled around America’s deep south documenting, with a Sony Porta-pak, his encounters with the characters of Memphis and New Orleans. In one sequence of the film shots are fired, in others good old boys decapitate chickens and a young bearded man with an angelic face raves about being stranded in Canton, a colloquialism for being out of one’s mind on drugs or alcohol.
