Delta Supper Club for the New York Times

What a night Delta Supper Club! So honored to document the evening on assignment for  The New York Times along with writer Hunter Atkins. Please check out my photos from the evening here: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/29/t-magazine/food/michelle-bernstein-delta-supper-club.html?referer&_r=2

Feeling proud today! But really, all the credit goes to the excellent folks who make Delta Supper Club such a meaningful occasion — each and every time!

Po' Monkey's Flood Slip.

Thankfully, Po' Monkey's is safe and sound with all the rain we've had. The parking lot is flooded. I did not intend to go swimming in it, but a huge drop-off caused me to lose my footing, slip on my back and fall neck-deep in the floodwater. No harm to me or the two cameras I was carrying. I held them up to the sky during the fall. All worth it!

Delta Backroads, Just After Takeoff.

Delta Backroads, Just After Takeoff.

It's an easy mistake to perceive the Mississippi Delta as flat and monotonous. What I've come to love about the Delta is that there's beauty everywhere you turn, whether you're turning on the ground or in the air. You just need to observe with a mindful eye.

Lil Poochie and Hezekiah Early

Blues legends Lil Poochie (pictured) and Hezekiah Early were in the Delta Music Institute recording studios today working on a new album. Good golly it was hard to stay focused behind the lens...I just wanted to juke and appreciate their incredible talent.

Delta Supper Club, Clarksdale

Just wanted to give a huge shoutout to the folks at Delta Supper Club. They've absolutely nailed two successful dinners, and it was a privilege to be there and document it in Clarksdale. Kimme Hargrove, David Crews and Stewart Robinson...y'all are rockin' it. Chef Cory Bahr, indescribably delicious food. Sweet Magnolia Gelato, ain't no dessert finer!

So good to see something take off in the Delta and continue to succeed. On to the next one!

Shot on assignment for Delta Magazine. Stay tuned for the future story and photos.
