Barry Feinstein – Bob Dylan

Barry Feinstein was an American photographer, active from 1955-1993, whose work has graced such publications as Life, Time, Esquire, and Newsweek, as well as many famous rock’n’roll album covers.

Of particular interest to me are his photos from when he accompianied Bob Dylan on his historic 1966 tour of the UK, where some people’s Folk Jesus turned Judas! Electric! Through his lens, we get a good sense of the toll that a fast-paced, heavily-scrutinized existance can have on a person. Directly after this tour Dylan dropped out of the public eye for years. He really has his eyes on that motorcycle outside the rearview window.
