Spanning his career, they range from huge, vivid prints taken in Mississippi (a woman smoking on her garden lounger, say) to previously unseen black-and-white scenes of life in his hometown of Memphis, played out in diners, markets and gas stations – a fascinating window on the changing face of the American South.
