Photographs Of Bob Dylan Exhibit To Launch May 23
Daniel Kramer: Photographs Of Bob Dylan, a traveling photographic exhibit curated by the GRAMMY Museum, will make its first-ever stop in the United States at the Paulucci Space Theatre in Dylan's hometown of Hibbing, Minn., on May 23. The exhibition — which first debuted at the British Music Experience in London in 2012 — explores the major milestones in Dylan's career in the '60s, and how they impacted the rock explosion that came to define the decade.
"Daniel Kramer spent one year photographing Bob Dylan—and what a year it was," said GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. "Through his photographs, Kramer captured Dylan's spirit and musical evolution and gave the world an early glimpse into the life of an American legend. We at the GRAMMY Museum are honored to be working with Mr. Kramer and the City of Hibbing to bring this exhibition to Minnesota."
Featuring more than 50 iconic photographs Kramer shot while on tour with Dylan from 1964–1965, the exhibit documents the GRAMMY winner's metamorphosis from folk musician to rock icon. Featured images include Dylan's recording sessions for 1965's Bringing It All Back Home, and the now-famous electric concert he performed at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, N.Y., in 1965, as well as other private moments.
Kramer is a New York-based photographer and film director whose portraits and picture stories have been published worldwide in major national and international magazines, books and on numerous album covers. His film work encompasses documentaries, commercials and educational films. Kramer's subjects include artists, writers, musicians, athletes, political figures and other professionals.
Daniel Kramer: Photographs Of Bob Dylan will be on display through Aug. 23, 2014.
