ORAIEN CATLEDGE

THU JUL 8 2004 — SAT AUG 21 2004

Born in Mississippi and living in Atlanta for the past 37 years, Oraien Catledge has established himself as the picture man of Atlanta's famed in-town neighborhood, Cabbagetown. The old mill in the heart of Cabbagetown, now affluent lofts, closed its doors in the early 1970's. But the Appalachian people who worked in the mill remained in the odd and eccentric neighborhood nestled in the center of downtown Atlanta. Oraien dedicated his life to this small community by taking over 25,0000 negatives of the people, the mill, and the life in which they lived. In 1985, University of Texas Press published Cabbagetown, a selection of photographs from this series. His work has been exhibited recently in Atlanta and New York City and can be found in the collection of High Museum of Art.
