“I love that nothing stopped Garry ethically. You’re not supposed to photograph panhandlers, someone who suffers from dwarfism, or leer at beautiful strange women. He’d just put out his lens and do it.”

Jack Leigh

Leigh was among a new generation of photographers in the mid-to-late-20th century creating images that focused on the complexity and overlooked beauty of the everyday world — isolated buildings, roadside signs, objects in a yard, tabletops and gas stations. Yet while his peers, such as William Eggleston and William Christenberry, moved into color photography and captured isolated scenes in various American cities, Leigh remained committed to black-and-white and focused his practice exclusively on his lowcountry home.

Leigh is the photographer behind the famous image of a Savannah garden statue that graced the cover of the 1990s best-selling book Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil. There has not been a survey of his long career since his death.

"Jack Leigh: Full Circle, Low Country Photographs 1972-2004" opens at the Savannah College of Art & Design Museum today. Read more.
