ISSUE 69: Photographs from Oraien Catledge

Oraien Catledge, whose work is featured in the current issue, is a Mississippi-born photographer whose portraits echo Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange, according to writer Richard Ford.

Here we present to you a few more images from his forthcoming collection, ORAIEN CATLEDGE: PHOTOGRAPHS. Catledge captures the starkness of the working-class South in the ’80s and ’90s with almost brutal clarity. His black-and-white settings are uncluttered and direct, offering an abrupt intimacy tempered with truth.

All photographs are by Oraien Catledge, from the forthcoming ORAIEN CATLEDGE: PHOTOGRAPHS, edited by Richard Ford and Constance Lewis (University Press of Mississippi, August 2010).
