Down at Theresa's: Chicago Blues: The Photographs of Marc Pokempner 1 of 1
Howard Mandel December 28, 00
Marc PoKempner's photos from the inside of Chicago's South Side blues clubs from the '70s through the 90s are full of funky, juicy urban life -- realistic, and due to that *truly* romantic. This is a gallery of 72 beautifully observed, composed and reproduced visions of music, musicians and audiences -- Po's text as epilog and an intro by Wolfgang Schorlau. As a companion for this, look for Ray Flerlage's photo and text work from the era before PoKempner was on the scene. The two men's work is related, complimentary, and considered together, resonates.
