Beschreibung

Exploring the swampy woods of Georgia's Chatham County some years ago, searching out places to photograph, Jack Leigh turned his car onto an obscure dirt road winding farther into the forest. Finally driving into a clearing on the banks of the Ogeechee, Leigh found himself at Uncle Shed's Fishing Camp and at the beginning of what would be a two-year discovery of the river and its people, a chronicle in images and words stretching from the Ogeechee's headwaters in Greene County to marsh flats near the Atlantic Ocean. In his photographs and text, Leigh introduces such natives as George Altman, standing knee-deep in water and reeling out fishing stories as he flicks his line into a shaded area beneath a fallen tree, and Jack Mikell, Sr., whose life on the river is told in the array of frying pans that hang on the wall behind him and in his recollections of long nights tending moonshine stills in backwater swamps. Leigh tells of the many stories the Ogeechee holds--of the Muck Runners, Louisville men who each winter slog through swamps and deadfalls two hundred miles to Savannah; of Frank Cox, whose journey down river, taken in numerous pieces with as many reluctant partners, fulfilled a childhood dream; and of a woman's baptism in Warren County, at which beads of anointing oil mingled with the cold water of the rushing river. Recording the wild ramblings and lazy progress of the Ogeechee, the quiet rituals and raucous stories of its people, Jack Leigh chronicles the course of lives that run with the current of the river.

Portrait

Jack Leigh's award-winning photographs are in numerous private and corporate collections and have also appeared in museums, magazines, and newspapers across the country and abroad. He is the author of five highly acclaimed books of photography including Oystering, Nets and Doors, Seaport, and The Land I'm Bound To. His most famous and widely recognized image is the photograph for the book cover of John Berendt's international best seller, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Leigh lives in Savannah, Georgia.

Pressestimmen

"Leigh's vision honors the human spirit and the dignity earned from experience." -Atlanta Journal-Constitution; "Leigh chronicles in words and images both an untamed river and a vanishing way of life... The stories are as memorable as Leigh's duotones." - Orlando Sentinel; "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"
