When You Get the Blues: Live Music Photography from Chicago, Detroit, and Toronto

Timothy A. Campbell


I was very lucky to grow up in Toronto when so many of the great blues musicians came and played the small clubs downtown. Years later, on reflection, I am grateful that I had the opportunity to photograph many of these historical shows. This exhibition documents the musicians, venues, clubs and soulful music. I met and talked with most of the musicians I photographed; some were legends, some were stars, and some were members of their bands.
