Art Kane was a huge Bob Dylan fan, and literally stalked a very un-cooperative Dylan around an L.A. rooftop to
get the shot. Dylan didn’t like being told what to do, and Kane didn’t shoot reportage style. Dylan, literally
cornered, submitted to the direction and gave up the shot with a smouldering look that says, alright, you win.
As Kane later recalled ” I told him, “I’m going to stay until I get what I want.” I finally manoeuvred him into a
corner, he slid down and looked up. I had my shot.”
