Stranded in Canton

William Eggleston


$90



Hardcover | First edition of 2000 | Includes DVD | 48 pages

Published by Twin Palms Publishers, 2008.

William Eggleston’s pioneering video work, Stranded In Canton, has been restored and is finally available, almost thirty-five years after it was made. The book contains forty frame enlargements from the digital remaster, an appreciation by Gus Van Sant, and a DVD of the seventy-seven-minute film itself, along with more than thirty minutes of bonus footage and an interview with Mr. Eggleston conducted at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival.

“Shot in 1974 with a Sony Porta-Pak, the crazily careering Stranded in Canton documents a cast of hard-drinking Southerners with the intimacy, ease and instability of a seasoned participant. Whiffs of Southern Gothic are not new to Mr. Eggleston’s work, but here they rise to the surface—fierce, tragic and proud.”
