    Osamu Nagahama, a photographer who has been active in magazines and advertising photography since the late 1960s, approached the age of 50 and thought, "If you do not take what you really like now, you will not be able to take it anymore." I was driven and took a private trip to Cotton Fields, a sacred place for the Blues, in the southern United States, to photograph the true face of the Bluesman.
    Eventually, I went to the deep south area of ​​the United States ten times in four years, met over 70 bluesmen, and left 42,000 cuts of film.

    In this publication, "Let's review film photographs that taste like analog records!", And members of the "Dear Film Project" formed by volunteers of editors and designers fell in love with Mr. Nagahama's photograph of Bluesman, somehow To make it into one book, Peter Barakán, who has a great deal of knowledge about American roots music, wrote down the text, and TransWorld Japan became the publisher and the release was realized. Like an analog record, like a vintage jeans, I finished in one book with a deep taste.
