A black and white photograph of the gritty blues musician Watermelon Slim in Reds bar in Clarksdale, Mississippi.  Watermelon Slim’s heartfelt and cathartic vocals, smooth playing of the slide guitar and riotous harmonica find a perfect home in Reds is a juke joint with an authentic feel in a small town dedicated to the delta blues.  

James Sparshatt’s black and white photographs of music and dance capture the emotion and intensity of people lost in the rhythm of the moment.

The work is available both as a baryta silver gelatin print, a delicious palladium platinum print by 31 Studio – The Platinum Print Room – recognised masters of this printing art form, and as larger archival prints.
