First edition of 700, an association copy of Patterson’s first book inscribed to Peter Fraser: ‘For Peter / With admiration / [signed] Christian Patterson’. Fraser and Patterson first met in 2006, having both spent time with William Eggleston at formative points in their careers. Fraser spent some months in Memphis living and working with Eggleston in 1984, whilst Patterson moved to Tennessee to assist Eggleston and work on the digitization of his archive between 2002 and 2005. These photographs were taken whilst he was living in Memphis, ‘Birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll’ and the ‘Home of the Blues.’ … [They] are light-borne visual melodies — musical arrangements of color, light, rhythm and form exploring musical places, music’s presence and the musicality of everyday life’.
