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.

Tom Murphy – Artist Talk @ Lumière May 22nd

Saturday May 22, 2010
11 am – 12 noon

The Galleries of Peachtree Hills
425 Peachtree Hills Ave.
Atlanta, GA 30305
Building Five

Tom Murphy was in the gallery and discussed his exhibition that opened May 22nd at the Booth Western Art Museum, in Cartersville GA.


Tom Murphy – comments on his photography 3:12

Murphy’s photography illustrates his passionate love for our wild clean earth. Tom’s understanding of wildlife is apparent from the beginning. He photographs wildlife as they go about their daily lives, patiently waiting for each animal to share its life with him in the wild.

Tom’s images reveal wildlife interacting with each other and with their environment: hunting, eating, drinking, running, plowing through deep snow, giving birth, nursing, playing, resting and sleeping, all in the beauty of the wildest places on earth. His landscapes reflect the natural beauty he finds and loves and works diligently to preserve.

Tom Murphy was raised on a 7500 acre cattle ranch in western South Dakota. This experience taught him more than he wanted to know about cattle and convinced him that he didn’t want to chase cows for the rest of his life, but it also provided him with invaluable lessons in animal behavior and a deep love for clean, wide open land.
