Lumière was pleased to host this event celebrating the publication of the new book: Oraien Catledge: Photographs. Oraien was on hand to sign copies, and was joined by Connie Lewis who served as co-editor of the book. Recently published by University Press of Mississippi, the book includes 70 of Oraien’s photographs.

Additional photos from the evening by John Ramspott can be found on Flikr.

Additional Biographical Information:
Oraien Catledge was born in Sumner, Mississippi, in 1928, and came to his photographer’s vocation near the end of a long career as a social worker in the state of Mississippi, and as an advocate for the blind throughout the South.

Although principally a photographer of people, Catledge’s sensuous, fastidious black and white work documents the landscapes and cityscapes of Mississippi and New Orleans, as well as imagining and recording the insular, working-class lives of the Cabbagetown neighborhood in center-city Atlanta — the signal achievement upon which his considerable reputation rests.

On this day in 1968, American singer and songwriter Johnny Cash recorded the album Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, in front of an audience of some 2,000 inmates at California's Folsom Prison. Shown here are two images by photographer Al Clayton. The first is a portrait of Cash taken on the set of the Johnny Cash show in Nashville and the second is an image from 1969 at the Cummins Prison in Arkansas. Prison reform was one of many humanitarian issues that Cash championed. More images by Clayton can be found on his Lumiere artist page. www.lumieregallery.net#johnnycash #alclaytonphotography #lumieregallery ... See MoreSee Less
