State of the Blues – Jeff Dunas

I picked up a copy of a new magazine to me, American Photo (March/April 2015) yesterday. The issue focuses on music photographers of then and now.

I just can’t get enough of music photography books. State of the Blues by photographer Jeff Dunas is an incredible portrait study of the artists who define the blues.

A hardcover book and paperback of the same title (1998) published by Aperture Foundation, includes photographs by Jeff Dunas, interviews with leading blues performers, a preface by John Lee Hooker, and an introduction by William Ferris.
