By Jim Marshall, Barry Feinstein, Daniel Kramer
Bob Dylan appeals as much to the generation of today as to his contemporaries. This attractively-priced paperback edition of early Dylan presents rare pictures of Dylan's early years by three leading rock photographers. Barry Feinstein, Daniel Kramer and Jim Marshall were alongside Dylan from the beginning and were given unique and personal access to the artist and his life behind the scenes. The conversational and personal captions by the authors explain each photograph and shed light on Dylan's life during those times - recording, playing pinball, hamming for the camera, spending time with girlfriends, or simply lost in thought. Some of the photographs are well-known classics that now belong in the permanent collection sof the Whitney Museum of American Art and the George Eastman House. Many others, however, appeared in this book for the first time and provide rare visual footbage of the early years of America's most compelling musical artist.
Examples: The Making Of 40 Photographs
By Ansel Adams

In this book, Adams shares the circumstances surrounding the making of many of his most celebrated photographs. Each of the 40 photographs are superbly reproduced in duotone, is accompanied by an entertaining and informative narrative that combines reminscence of people and places with precise recall of technical details and aesthetics considerations.The specific technical information on camera and lens, filters, exposure times, developing, and printing provided in each example illustrates his approach and methods and will assist amateur and professional photographers alike in learning the craft. Through this case study approach, Adams' philosophy of craft and creativity unfolds: his credos of visualisation, image management, and the Zone System are demonstrated: and the colour story of a lifetime devoted to photography is revealed.
