The portrait of a very young Bob Dylan on the cover of 'The Times They Are a Changin' is probably one of the most recognizable and famous album covers of all time. Photographer Barry Feinstein took that photo, as well as many more of Dylan throughout his career. His images have been published throughout the world many times over, and have become synonymous with our perceptions of that place and time in rock and folk music history. Inspired by a series of photographs that Feinstein took in Hollywood during the 1950s and 60s, Bob Dylan wrote an extraordinary series of poems that have remained unpublished for decades. They are thought-provoking, witty and erudite observations of the world; through the lens of Feinstein's photographs, they speak volumes about the anonymous faces and places of Los Angeles, and offer wry commentary on images of stars and legends in the neighbourhood at the time. Photos of Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland float through the book, as do poignant images of starlets, casting couches, employment agencies and palm tree'd boulevards.Feinstein was there with a camera to capture some world-famous events, such as Marilyn Monroe's memorial service, and he photographed the forgettable moments, preserving them perfectly and timelessly.Bob Dylan's unsettling and distinctly unique perspective informs and enlivens every page, an irresistible interpretive voice narrating the visual images from photo to photo.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Born Robert Allen Zimmerman in 1941, Bob Dylan is without question one of the most influential figures in the history of popular music. He not only revolutionised popular music by incorporating poetry in his folk and rock compositions, he also helped create a more inclusive and progressive consciousness in American culture.
"How did Hollywood Foto-Rhetoric begin? Is this a combination of different photographic projects?", wird Feinstein gefragt. Er antwortet: "No, it wasn't that glamorous. I thought Hollywood would make a good essay. So I started making all the pictures that looked weird [...]. Just shot them and shot them and shot them and I hoped to someday do something with them."
Gut, nun wissen wir, wieso Feinstein diese Bilder gemacht hat. Aber welche Rolle spielt Dylan dabei? "I just met him in New York and I liked him and I liked his music. I liked the songs that he wrote and I asked him if he'd like to do it, and sure enough he came out to California and took the pictures [from me] and wrote 'em. Easy as that. He hit right on the head. I mean they really made the pictures more interesting, I think", erklärt der Fotograf - und dem stimme ich zu. Die Bilder sind auch ohne Dylans Gedichte sehr interessant, doch Dylans spontanen Einfälle zu den einzelnen 23 Fotografie (es sind mehr Fotografie enthalten, keine Sorge! Dylan hat jedoch lediglich zu 23 von ihnen ein Gedicht / einen Text verfasst) geben einen neuen, anderen Blick.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

The photos are sometimes raw, sometimes dark, sometimes light, always a delight, and Dylan's poems are, as Billy Collins says in the introduction (that you might almost miss; Collins and Sante don't get a mention anywhere) "marked by unexpected bursts of surrealism, lines that seem pulled out of a hat or caught falling from the sky rather than simply written down."
Hollywood Foto-Rhetoric is a coffee table book that you will actually want to sit down with and savor, one you will actually want to read.
Excellent as Bob Dylan has added his thoughts in prose to this hidden gem of a book. Worthy addition to your library.
