Photographer Notes :
A shop window reflects a colorful mix of Delta characters found in Clarksdale, Mississippi, a small town that claims to be the “crossroads of culture and quirkiness with a heavy dose of the blues”. Visit the hotel that was once a hospital that refused to admit the infamous blues singer Bessie Smith because of the color of her skin contributing to her death, dine at a restaurant co-owned and frequented by Morgan Freeman or visit the Crossroads where folklore claims the legendary blues artist, Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his talent of playing the guitar.
THAT MISSISSIPPI SOUND, THAT DELTA SOUND, IS IN THEM OLD RECORDS. YOU CAN HEAR IT ALL THE WAY THROUGH. - MUDDY WATERS -
