BLUESCAPES: Landscapes of the Mississippi Delta, a Photography Exhibit Featuring the Work of
Jacques Moury Beauchamp is presented at Webster University's May Gallery.
From Photographer Jacques Moury Beauchamp:
“I had gone on a quest for the landscapes that once inspired the founding fathers of the Blues. I met a people still longing for some recognition long overdue. Some traces of their memories are what I recorded on film. Since 1993, when the state of Mississippi legalized gambling, the Delta is being progressively ‘cleansed’ of many reminders of the past.”
Jacques Moury Beauchamp teaches photography and digital imaging in France and the United States. He worked as chairman of the Visual Communication Department at the PARSONS SCHOOL OF DESIGN Paris campus. His photographic illustrations have been published in more than twenty countries worldwide.
Living in France's Loire Valley since 1998, he shares his time between his fine art work, commissioned photographic illustrations and the transmission of his passion to the new actors of photography.
