Daniel Kramer // Bob Dylan // A Year and a Day
When photographer Daniel Kramer first met Bob Dylan, the 23-year-old singer was still widely unknown. At their initial meeting in Woodstock, Dylan seemed restless and uncomfortable in front of the camera. Yet over the course of a year and a day, all of that would change. From 1964 to 1965, Kramer’s extraordinary access to Bob Dylan on tour, in concert, and backstage, allowed for one of the most mesmerizing portfolios of any recording artist and a stunning document of Dylan breaking through to superstardom.
Daniel Kramer’s classic Bob Dylan portfolio captures the artist’s transformative “big bang” year, tracing his journey through vast concert halls, the Lincoln Center Philharmonic Hall concert with Joan Baez, intimate recording sessions, and the now-infamous concert at Forest Hills, when Dylan made his controversial transition to electric guitar.
When first published in 1967, with the encouragement of W. Eugene Smith, Kramer’s Dylan portfolio became an instant classic. Now, a half century later, TASCHEN rediscovers this body of work with a curated selection of nearly 200 images, many never published before, including outtakes from the Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited album cover shoots.
A prized edition for any serious Dylan fan, this is at once an intimate and evocative testimony to a seminal photographer, to a unique period of rock’n’roll history, and to a particular, mysterious artist at the moment his career went global.
