A little more history in info on Blues on Beale Street book:

“Blues on Beale Street: Memoirs of The International Blues Challenge” is a photo book accompanied
by a series of personal experiences, short stories, song lyrics and quotes collected from a vast variety of IBC attendees.

When asked "Do you have any favorite images from the book?" Jenn's response was:
 "100% of my heart is in each of these photos. I love each one for a different reason, some for the people in them, some for composition, some for the expressions and emotions, some for the texture and layers, some for the songs that were being performed, some for the personal struggles or the joy I was feeling. SO many different reasons to love each photo I placed in the book. I don’t have to pick one so I won’t. The tough part is creating a gallery show with a handful of images to enlarge for a gallery opening and traveling exhibit. But like the images in the book, those will speak to me as well."


The exhibit will be hanging in the LSU Student Union Gallery | March 13 - April 1
