Photography: Butch Oglesby

His birth certificate says his name is Arthur Leon Oglesby, but growing up in south Alabama in the early 1950s, that name never stuck. So he has been known as Butch all of his life. Born in Mobile, Alabama, Butch Oglesby spent his youth reading and dreaming about adventures all over the world. Now in his 60s and having lived in a few US states and in Europe for about a decade, Butch has embraced his adopted hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. He sees the uniqueness and beauty of his city and sets out to capture and present painterly images in ways that cause the viewer to pause and ponder.
