Juergen Kerth – The Blues legend from East Germany

Story and photo by Chris Koppers

I had the honor to take some photographs of Juergen Kerth. He started playing in the early 1960’s. Historical moments like the abridgement of the German Democratic Republic paved his way to his new audience in the United States.  Juergen provides Blues at its best.  I would name his art as “a distinctive vibe of a guitar hero”.

I loaded my Flex with an Ilford Delta 3200.
