Jack Leigh

Jack Leigh was an award-winning photographer, heralded for his iconic images of the American South, particularly the Low Country.  In 1993, Leigh was commissioned to create the famous cover image for the international bestselling book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, by John Berendt.  Most sadly, Jack Leigh died in 2004 from colon cancer, but his legacy lives on through his images, treasured throughout the world and most reverently in places like Savannah, Charleston and Beaufort.
