This exhibit features a small selection of black and white photographs from the Guy Hayes collection and provides a unique view of food trends, clothing styles and recreational diversions of the 1950s and '60s. Hayes was a professional freelance photographer from 1944 through 1983. He graduated from Clarkston High School and served in the Navy during World War II. After the war he settled in Avondale Estates. Hayes was a regular contributor to The Atlanta Journal, The Atlanta Constitution and The DeKalb News/Sun. More than 11,000 of his original negatives were donated to the DeKalb History Center in 1984. Although very little documentation accompanies this collection, Hayes’ artistic work reveals a prolific talent with an incisive eye. Hayes’ work includes current events or staged shoots that were used to illustrate stories as requested by newspapers.
