Description - The Ogeechee by Jack Leigh

Exploring the swampy woods of Georgia's Chatharn 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 bang on the wall behind him and in his recollections of long nights tending moonshine stills in backwater swamps.
