I recently did an interview with a "living legend;" civil rights photographer Ernest Withers, who still has a working and active career, with a studio located in the heart of Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee.

If you've seen images from/of the civil rights movement in the South, you've seen his work.

Photographic coverage of the Emmett Till trial was one of his more famous assignments.

The man is close to 85 years old, sharp as a tack, and cranky as hell! But he did allow me to take a few quick snaps of his studio.
