Mississippi: State of Blues is the latest book from acclaimed photographer Ken Murphy, whose work was previously collected in the coffee table books Mississippi and My South Coast Home. The result of a three-year collaboration between Murphy and Oxford-based blues writer Scott Barretta, the book offers an assessment in both image and prose of the way blues exists and persists in the in 21st century. It offers a refreshingly new look at the world of Mississippi blues, capturing both traditional imagery and modern expressions of blues tourism via Murphy's characteristically highly detailed and panoramic full color image
