Music Photographer and Writer

As a photographer, Jacob has been bringing together sound and image for the past 7 years. He has shot album covers for Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Antibalas, Dave ‘Baby’ Cortez, Laura Cantrell, and has been published in magazines and newspapers around the world. In 2009, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music mounted a solo exhibition of Jacob’s work, “Still Life in Soul: Contemporary Music Photography of Jacob Blickenstaff.”

Jacob’s eye and heart are turned towards a still under-appreciated, rich and varied music history; to those still creating irreducibly unique, moving music. Personal projects have taken him through New Orleans, Chicago, Memphis, Nashville and Detroit, seeking the authentic originators and practitioners of an increasingly lost art.
