Juke Joint.

Photographs by Birney Imes. Essay by Richard Ford.
University Press of Mississippi, Jackson, 1990. 120 pp., 60 full-color illustrations,, 11x10".

"In this spectacular album of full-color photographs Birney Imes reveals a previously unexplored domain, the black juke joints of the Mississippi Delta country, and transforms this familiar phenomenon of Delta cultural life into something rich and strange. Richard Ford contributes a long, perceptive essay that probes the photographs for their aesthetic values and for what they reveal beyond their documentary appeal of granting a view of an element of Delta cultural life. In them he appreciates the power of Imes to convert the ordinary and the actual into the exotic."--the publisher.
