Oystering: A Way of Life (Limited Edition)

Jack Leigh’s first extended book project concentrated on the lives of oystermen along the barrier islands of the South Carolina coast.

This special edition is presented in a linen slip case. Foreword by James Dickey

The Ogeechee: A River and Its People

Leigh devoted two years to a photographic journey on Georgia’s Ogeechee River, tracing the river from its source in a field in Northwest Georgia to its confluence with the Atlantic Ocean.

The Ogeechee: A River and Its People was published in 1986 by the University of Georgia Press as part of the Wormsloe Foundation publication series.

“Sepia-tinted photographs and shared anecdotes form an affectionate and plain-spoken portrait of the vanishing lifestyle of the rural South… Leigh has captured a way of life on film that few outsiders will ever see”

-Boston Herald

Nets & Doors: Shrimping in Southern Waters

From 1986 to 1989, Jack Leigh set out to capture the unique quality and faces of another Southern cultural enclave—the shrimp fisherman who ply the waters along Georgia’s coastline. Nets & Doors presents a beautiful, poignant and memorable evocation and record of a way of life which is rapidly changing and may be passing away. Nets & Doors: Shrimping in Southern Waters was published by Wyrick & Company in late 1989. “Leigh’s vision honors the human spirit and the dignity earned from experience.”  – Atlanta Journal-Constitution


$45.00 plus $12.00 shipping and handling.

Seaport: A Waterfront at Work

Published in 1996 by Wyrick & Company, Seaport: A Waterfront at Work, was the result of six years of work on the docks, pilot boats, and container ships in the busy Port of Savannah. It marks the fourth volume of Jack Leigh’s ongoing chronicle of life in the American South.

“..elagiac black-and-white photographs… Mr. Leigh resembles (Lewis Hine) – not estetically, but in his ability to depict manual labor and, indeed, the South itself, without either sentimentality or condescension.”
– Vivien Raynoe, The New York TImes

Ossabaw

A collaboration of three artists, Ossabaw captures scenes of contemporary Ossabaw Island, just off the Georgia coast, that evoke a landscape as it may have appeared to its Native American inhabitants.  Leigh, Campbell, and Kilgo are all Southern artists who have found inspiration and sustanance on this southern barrier island. Ossabaw was published in 2004 by The University of Georgia Press. “Employs masters of the camera lens, written word, and painted canvas to offer testimony to the enduring natural beauty of Georgia’s Ossabaw Island . . . Ossabaw: Evocations of an Island transcends the category of coffee-table book by providing thought-provoking depth and substance. Together, the devotions of these artists will help you see one of coastal Georgia’s natural treasures in an entirely new way.”

Snowbound

Snowbound shows landscapes in which everyday objects—alienated and sunken in snow—“civilize” the natural surroundings. Traces of human existence set accents in the white landscape, delimiting it and often popping up in an amusing or incongruous way. Young American artist, Lisa M. Robinson, is not just interested in showing the obvious, she makes use of the many aggregate states of water—ice, snow, fog, and water—as metaphors for life and transience.

Snowbound delivers what one hopes to see (but is harder to find these days) in an emerging photographer—knowledge of her medium, a rich and varied inner life, fearlessness in vision, and an in-depth study of her chosen subject.”

-Carol McCusker
