Photo exhibit opens with reception

The fading lifestyle of Southern Truck farmers, told through the photography of Georgia photographer Perry Dilbeck, takes center stage tonight at The Photography Center at Rankin Square in Columbus.

The exhibition, "The Last Harvest:Truck Farmers in the Deep South" features twenty six of the images from the monograph published in 2006 by the University of Georgia Press in association with the Center For American Places. Dilbeck captured the images with a Holgas, a simple plastic camera. He recently was awarded Georgia Author of the year this project.

There is a reception and book signing, open to the public, from 7-10pm tonight at the gallery, located at 9 10th street. The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Dilbeck's images will be on display through March 15.
