Eggleston’s “Stranded in Canton” on Youtube

If you’re not in NYC and can’t make it to the Whitney, Eggleston’s “Stranded in Canton” is on youtube. It’s also available via Twin Palms’ edition, with a book.

When I saw it screened a few years ago, it was without voiceover, as a recall. The sequence of the edit seems different, too. Google around, the story behind the film is worthwhile. And for stills taken around the same time, definitely check out Eggleston’s “5×7” also from Twin Palms [review here].


And if you like to hang-on to things that quickly disappear, this tool works well.

Thanks, Steve

  1. Thanks for posting this. I’ve been looking for Eggleston stuff to get even more excited over. (We’re going up special just to see the retrospective in a couple weeks.)
