This new section comprises a series of Blues Photographic Exhibitions I was invited to compile and present at The Foto Galleria in Colne, Lancashire to coincide with The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival. Each exhibition has its own theme and the photos are presented here as they were presented in the gallery together with supporting text. Click the exhibition title or photo to go to the individual photo gallery.

For the Downhome Blues Exhibition I was invited to give a presentation of the background to the photos, how they were selected, where the artist photos were taken, details of the artist's home town and how I came to be there to take the photos.

For the Blues Filter Exhibition I have included some additional photos taken when several of the artists performing at the festival visited the exhibition (some to view photos of themselves taken at the festival in previous years!).

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Note for Festival Organisers:
These exhibitions are portable in that I can set them up to display as framed prints at festivals having suitable space (flexible to fit the space available). I can also include a presentation if required. Please email me at
alan@earlyblues.com if you are interested.
