Blake has compiled a great little piece about the final images of some of the best known photobooks.

Here’s what Blake has to say about Eggleston:

The final image in Eggleston’s Guide is typical Eggleston. It’s so banal it almost seems meaningless. Yet I’ve always found this picture loaded and menacing. Peaked hoods in the south creep me out. I wouldn’t make this my last image before bedtime.

 

Near Jackson, Mississippi, 1970, William Eggleston
