Don Hong-Oai, 1929-2004
Photo-eye mourns the passing of photographer Don Hong-Oai, who died on June 8. Born in Canton China in 1929, Don Hong-Oai was apprenticed to a Saigon portrait studio as a seven-year-old child where he learned the basics of photography. He attended Vietnam University College of Art and began to teach the art and science of photography at age 21. In 1979 He fled Vietnam by boat and came as a refugee to the United States. Working with the style and themes of traditional Chinese painting and photography, Don Hong-Oai blended multiple negatives to create timeless, poetic images of the Chinese landscape.

Photographer Jack Leigh Dies at 55
Photographer Jack Leigh, best known for his moody landscapes of Southern locales, died on May 19 after a long bout with cancer. Leigh's best known image graced the cover of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, John Berendt's tale of a murder in Savannah, Georgia that features a cast of captivating and outrageous characters.

The book remained on the New York Times bestseller list for over four years. The cover photo—an image of the statue known as the "Bird Girl," which stood in Savannah's Bonaventure Cemetery for many years—was vital to the Southern Gothic mystique of the book. The photo became an iconic image of Savannah and was subsequently used on billboards and advertisements that helped fuel a tourist boom resulting from the book's publication.

Kathleen Laraia McLaughlin's portfolios Shades of Romania and
The Color of Hay: Maramures, Romani

"In my work I photograph people who have a deep felt sense of tradition. For one year, beginning in the Autumn of 1999, I lived in the village Sârbi in Maramures, Romania. My purpose is to capture and convey images of their way of life before it becomes further compromised by globalization."—Kathleen Laraia McLaughlin

Never before, however, has there been a book that paints this picture in full color. Published in association with the Library of Congress."—the publisher
