We all have our heroes. 

 

When I was a teenager I had an alter ego - - someone  I would have preferred to be and whom I thought, given the delusions of that age, I might be.  That person was Bob Dylan.  He has since become my hero, no longer a delusion, and my favored candidate for the Nobel Prize in Literature.


Bob Dylan was at first defined by his music but he became just as much defined by his “look” and his aspect.  Those were found in photographs, in a time before music videos.

 

The photographer most responsible for showing us Bob Dylan when I was a teenager was Daniel Kramer.  I didn’t know that then.  But essentially all of the photographs that made me connect deeply with Dylan were Kramer’s taken between 1964 and 1965.

 

The publisher Tashen just released a monograph of Kramer’s Dylan photos and I was thrilled to be invited to the opening of a related gallery show here in Los Angles where my son took this photo:

I got to meet and thank Daniel Kramer for his work. As you can see from this shot I took, he’s still at it:

And this was certainly one of the most influential Kramer photographs that became the Highway 61 Revisited album cover, arguably Dylan's most influential work; shown here with two cultural artifacts that the Dylan oeuvre and legacy no doubt helped to spawn:

Hello! I have a question (I'm sorry if I bother you but it's important)
Someone else enter in my deviantart and change my username, i really didn't want this.
So, i was wondering if it's posible to change it back to the original one. 
Please, it would be really helpful! ♥

Thank you <3
