The Land I'm Bound to: Photographs

While technology and urban sprawl have transformed much of our country in the last half of the twentieth century, Jack Leigh has been quietly documenting the people and the landscape of the Southeastern coast, a region steeped in history and tradition. The Land I'm Bound To is the photographer's tribute to the richly diverse culture of his native region. His subjects range from solitary oystermen working the fog-shrouded salt marshes of South Carolina...

A True Treasure

Anyone who has visited or even just read about the Southeastern coast will be drawn in and held spellbound by Jack Leigh's photographs. The emotion and connection that Mr. Leigh feels for his home comes flooding out of the pages in the form of places, people and light.I have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Leigh twice. Once 5 years ago when my husband and I stumbled on his gallery, and again when I brought my mother back to Savannah for the first time in 70 years. Both times Mr. Leigh was not only gracious but full of the stories about each one of his masterpieces. He is for real, folks! It is easy to see how he forms the relationships that produce his photographs. Having seen many of the original pieces in Mr. Leigh's gallery, I can atest to the quality of the printing and reproduction. Care was taken with this book.One final word, pay particular attention to the work entitled "Cold Mellons." It is not only my favorite, but Mr. Leigh's first photograph. There is a whole story about how that piece almost didn't survive developing. Some things are just meant to be.

breathtaking photographs

I was drawn to this book because I am a huge Pat Conroy fan - I wasn't disappointed. All the images allowed me to understand the area and the people - they are beautiful photographs.
