"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. Highlights include the Lincoln Center's Philharmonic Hall concert with Joan Baez; the Bringing It All Back Home recording sessions; and the now famous concert at Forest Hills, when Dylan's controversial transition to electric guitar exemplified his constant, cryptic state of becoming. As much a document of a seminal period of rock-n-roll history as of Dylan himself, the pictures also feature such compelling friends and collaborators as Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Allen Ginsberg, and Albert Grossman" (Taschen). With nearly 200 images, many never published before, including outtakes from the Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited album cover shoots. First published in 1967. This copy is one of 100 copies with an original signed and numbered gelatin silver print titled "Bob Dylan: Columbia Records, Studio" (1965) by Kramer.
