The Scad Museum of Art presents Jack Leigh: Full Circle, Low Country Photographs, 1972-2004, an exhibit honoring and showcasing the work of the acclaimed Savannah-based photographer. Best known for his 1993 photograph "Midnight" that was made nationally famous through John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Leigh also documented low country terrain and traditions through his work.

The exhibit will also display works by Eva Rubenstein, Walker Evans, Helen Levitt, George Tice, Sally Mann, William Christenberry, William Eggleston, Lisa Robinson, Marcus Kenney, Tobia Makover, among others.
