Take A Road Trip Through The Blues Belt

Take A Road Trip Through The Blues Belt

Just after the Sony α7R III was introduced a small group of photographers and filmmakers had a special opportunity to take a road trip through the south. Following the trail of America’s great musical heritage, these members of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective met in New Orleans and traveled along the Blues Trail making stops at Graceland and in the clubs of Memphis and Nashville. Along the way they created portraits and photographed musicians like the Preservation Hall Band, Memphis Jones and The Sisterhood in the intimate venues the region is known for. Here are some of the highlights from the trip.
