Project Description

Daniel Kramer made the cover photographs for two of Bob Dylan’s most famous albums: 1965’s Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited.

Daniel Kramer by Arlien philipsDaniel Kramer is a renowned New York City based photographer who worked with Bob Dylan in the key years 1964 and 1965, and who was responsible, among other things, for the cover photography on two of Dylan’s most important albums, the groundbreaking Bringing It All Back Home and its incendiary follow up, Highway 61 Revisited. It is a measure of Dylan’s talent that both these records were released within six months of each other, in March and August 1965.

Daniel Kramer’s archive is breathtaking – in addition to the 1965 album cover sessions, he spent time on the road and in private with Bob Dylan in 1964 and 1965, was in the recording studio in January 1965 when Bob recorded Bringing It All Back Home and later that year, Like a Rolling Stone, and he also photographed the electric performance with The Hawks at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium. His iconic phototographs of Bob Dylan have appeared in museums and galleries internationally and on five Dylan album covers, and he is the author of the first major photographic book about Bob Dylan – 1967’s “Bob Dylan : a Portrait of the Artist’s Early Years”.

Daniel Kramer’s signed limited edition photographs are offered in a range of physical size options.
