Since 2008, Lou Bopp has made regular trips to Mississippi to record the end of an era of blues musicians who have made important contributions to the classic American genre of music called the Blues. To date, he has made compelling portraits of around 70 of these artists. In this body of work, he has also recorded the culture of the juke joints, roadhouses and that overall Mississippi culture that has supported the music. Bopp’s photographs are compelling portraits of the people and places of Mississippi Blues music, but they are more than documents. His keen sensitivity to color and composition has resulted in a body of work that is both art and document.
