Louisiana photographer Debbie Fleming Caffery is known as one of the South's top documentary photographers, especially for her book and related exhibit, "Carry Me Home," about her home state's last generation of workers to harvest sugarcane by hand.
Her newest project sounds like something of a departure, the book “Alphabet,” just published by Atlanta’s Fall Line Press, except that the black-and-white images corresponding to the 26 letters were culled from the photographer’s deep archive. It includes an introduction by High Museum of Art photography curator Brett Abbott.
Jackson Fine Art will host a book launch party at 6 p.m. Oct. 20, during which an exhibition of the “Alphabet” prints will go on view (through Nov. 8). Caffery will speak about the work and sign copies of the case-bound edition ($45).
