Los AlamosNew to Amsterdam, the Los Alamos exhibition by William Eggleston depicts the photographer's travels across America.

William Eggleston is often dubbed the godfather of color photography. Early in his career, he broke away from the norm of photographing solely in black and white. While experimenting with color film and dyeing techniques, he embraced the rich saturation of hues he found in color photography. For more than 50 years, he has used his art to capture and transform everyday moments in the American landscape.

A chronicle of his travels across the US from 1966 through 1974, Los Alamos is one of Eggleston’s iconic series. The photos are quintessentially American, and a vibrant depiction of a moment in time. They’re a testament to Eggleston’s innovative and highly personal methodology. Los Alamos is on display in Amsterdam now.

William Eggleston: Los Alamos runs until June 7, 2017 at Foam.
