Delta: Everything Southern, 2013


Ms. Beatrice Chauvin is a French magazine photographer and musician. Her family briefly lived in Maryland when she was a toddler. She studied at La Sorbonne, wrote her master's thesis about the Cheyenne Indians and later taught their language. While on a press trip to Memphis, she was inspired by the blues and formed an attachment to the region, returning as often as she could. Ms. Chauvin's photographs have appeared in the French publication, Blues Magazine. She will share her belief “that there is something strong, poetic, emotional and mystical in the landscapes, juke joints, songs and voices of the land.” Presentation from the collection of William Bearden.
