Blues, Booze, and BBQ PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Blues, Booze, and BBQ free pdf Documents 150 miles of Highway 61, the famed blacktop road which snakes from Memphis to Mississippi and passes the birthplace of blues, Clarkesdale. The delta has become home to legends such as John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Ike Turner and Willie King. Blues is the glue that hold these communities together as they struggle to survive. Young's photographs, taken at juke joints, in private homes, or just hanging out illustrate the bond that this genre creates between the Delta and its inhabitants and the power of music in celebrating and protecting heritage.

About Michael Lloyd Young

Michael Loyd Young lives in Houston, Texas. Since 2002 Young has worked on several projects, traveling to 21 different countries documenting cultural symbols and the impact they have on the daily lives of the people he photographs. This is Young's first book. All proceeds will be donated to the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, Mississppi. He is currently working on his second book, documenting the hunting and fishing culture along the Gulf Coast, from southern Texas to the Florida Everglades. David Alan Harvey discovered photography at an early age and quickly began photographing his family and neighborhood. At 20 Harvey lived with, and documented the lives of a black family living in Virginia. These photographs were self-published in his first book, Tell It Like It Is. Harvey went on to shoot over 40 essays for "National Geographic "magazine and publish Cub (National Geographic, 2000), Divided Soul (Phaidon, 2003), and Living Proof (powerHouse Books, 2007). Harvey has been at Magnum Photos since 1993 and lives in New York.
