Jack Leigh

The late Jack Leigh was best known for his photograph of the Bird Girl - a ubiquitous image here in Savannah and possibly one of the most powerful book cover photos in history. His careful and sensitive eye chronicled the American Southeast in a way that defied popular conception and cliché.

I was sad to see that the Jack Leigh Gallery closed a few months back, but it still maintains an online presence.
