From the publisher: "The Democratic Forest is a modern epic. This monumental work consists of many thousands of color photographs made during the eighties by distinguished American photographer William Eggleston....Eggleston's forest consists not only of the abundant foliage and vertical forms of trees, but also of the upright telegraph poles that line the highways and bind the world together with the wires of communication. It is an empty uninhabited landscape populated by automobiles. Eggleston transcends his role as a great Southern artist and touches on a universal perspective."
