I am focusing on the photography of William Eggleston for post-modernism.
So what is the difference between Modernism and Postmodernism?
Modernism emphasises on rationality, technical progress and the power of sciences, for example landscape photographer, Ansel Adams. Modernism photography sticks to the ‘rules’ and postmodernism rejects the ‘rules’. Modern photography is filled with warmth and passion, while post-modern photography is said to be dispassionate and cold. Postmodernism is anything that challenges modern concepts and concerns, for example, the works of William Eggleston. Postmodernism lasted from the 1920’s to the early 1970’s . Postmodernism rejects the tenets of modernism, such as belief in reason and notion of truth, Postmodernism rejects the elements that comprise the modernist world, including the ideas of truth, self meaning and purpose.
