Portrait of the artist's dear friend, bluesman Terry Harmonica Bean (right, performing), and musician Lurrie Bell (left, listening). The composition and nuance of color in this image reflects the rigor, emotional range, and exquisite timing of Terry Bean's music. He is a fierce anti-racist, and these colors in their complexity speak to me of that sense of justice. The image at first appears to be black & white, but it is not so simple. Digital color photograph by Baltimore artist Jo Brown, taken at Briggs Farm Blues Festival, Nescopeck, Pennsylvania, 2012.
