Forever Young: Photographs of Bob Dylan
In 1964, Douglas Gilbert was hired by Look magazine to photograph a young up-and-coming musician named Bob Dylan. Gilbert snapped over 900 of the most candid shots ever taken of Dylan, less than a year before he became completely inaccessible to the public. The photos, beautifully composed, capture the 23-year-old Dylan in rare private moments hanging out with friends (including Allen Ginsberg, Phil Ochs, and John Sebastian, among others) and family in Woodstock, at concerts, and in New York City's classic dive bar -- the Kettle of Fish. Look magazine never ran the story and the photos sat unseen for forty years, until now. With an intimate and revealing text by acclaimed Springsteen biographer Dave Marsh, Forever Young is an irresistible compendium of nearly 100 of the best images from this fascinating, pivotal time in Bob Dylan's career.
