Jacob Blickenstaff has created many of the most powerful images of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings that exist. Working closely with Daptone Records since 2009, he’s had intimate access to Sharon’s life as an artist, covering key performances, recording sessions, back stage rituals, and life on the road. He's shot work for 7 album covers on the Daptone label, including SJDK's Soul of a Woman, I Learned the Hard Way, It's a Holiday Soul Party, and the Miss Sharon Jones! soundtrack, as well as albums from Antibalas, Naomi Shelton, and The Como Mamas.
The New York Times: Lens Blog highlighted Jacob's work documenting the life of Sharon Jones in 2016.
NPR Music featured a photographic remembrance of Sharon spanning 7 years of work.
