Photos and Films by Yancey Allison
Yancey Allison a Como photographer first met and photographed RL Boyce in the late 1990s. Decades of shared memories captured on film, Yancey has rarely shown her photos of RL. From raucous yard party performance to tender images of RL cradling his daughter. Yancey’s intimate eye gives an honest glimpse into the life of a 21c. Afro-American Mississippi Blues musician.
