Two high-energy photon beamlines, LEPS and LEPS2, have been operated at SPring-8. In both beamlines, linearly polarized photon beams up to 2.9 GeV produced by laser-induced backward Compton scattering from 8 GeV electrons have been used to study quark-nuclear physics via the photo-production of hadrons. In this article, I present some recent results from LEPS including the coherent ø photoproduction from 4He and γp → π− Δ++ reaction, and report on the current status of the developments of the LEPS2 solenoid spectrometer.
